Municipal Council approves entrance and exit in Dhajeej
The Municipal Council approved the request of the Public Authority for Roads and
Land Transport to create an entrance and exit for the Jaber Al-Ahmad Circuit
site in the Dhajeej area from Road (6.5). Director General of Kuwait
Municipality Ahmed Al-Manfouhi presented five projects during the 12th regular
session of this year which come within the government’s work program.
“The first project includes a cultural center for entertainment at Abdullah
Al-Ahmad street which will be executed in five phases at a cost of up to KD 500
million. In support of the vision of New Kuwait 2035, the Kuwait Municipality,
in cooperation with an international office, has prepared the initial designs
for the project, obtained the approval for studies on traffic system and
determined the feasibility of the project and its social and environmental
impact,” Al-Manfouhi said.
“In view of the importance of the project, the Municipality decided to invite
investors wishing to participate in designing, licensing, constructing,
maintaining and managing it. The Municipality will call for potential investors
to invest in the project in accordance with the rules and regulations mentioned
in the qualification brochure. Those who are qualified will be asked to submit
their bid, including their technical and economic feasibility studies that meet
the conditions contained in the bidding prerequisites,” he clarified.
“The second project is to develop Sulaibikhat Bay, but there are some obstacles
with the Supreme Council for the Environment on one of its main articles,
indicating that the Municipality is working to find solutions to those hurdles
and then put it up with the same mechanism that is being implemented in the
Abdullah Al-Ahmad project,” he indicated.
“As for the third project, the economic zone in Abdali, aims to support
investment initiatives that will work on boosting local and domestic products,
as there are detailed building regulations listed and are now being worked on.
For the fourth project, it will work on ending the phenomenon of residential
investment in private residential areas, as procedures are being coordinated to
end it,” he added.
“As for the last project, it is related to the development of Jahra waterfront

tendering the project now,” he concluded.
