Relocated scrap yard yet to be provided with basic amenities ‘No water supply, no electricity’

KUWAIT CITY, July 20: The concerned authorities have yet to provide basic amenities for the relocated Amghara scrap yard at Kilometer 41 off the Salmi-Saudi Arabia Road ever since the former site was dismantled and owners of the shops were moved to the new site, reports Al-Seyassah daily. A source said there’s no water supply and electricity to the new site, besides poor road network. He stressed that people having need for used spare parts for their vehicles find it difficult to locate the place, due to lack of adequate signposts, noting the place completely lacks necessary basic amenities.

In his comment, a shop owner Faisal Al-Mutairi complained that the concerned authorities forced them to move to Salmi Area without providing the basic amenities to make life easy for them; although the officials were aware the location is at the outskirt of the country. He said the people there need water chillers, a cooperative society branch or grocery since the site is away from Jahra.

According to Fahad Abdul-Rahman, the car scrap market is equally important as automobiles warehouses. He indicated all countries take their car scrap yards seriously because they consider the sector as an important secondary market for metals, besides the role it plays in accommodating scrapped cars.
Another respondent Kamal Hassan affirmed that the car scrap yard area needs major improvement, noting the place is in the outskirts of Kuwait and should have health center and mosques, apart from electricity required for operating refrigerators and water chillers. He complained about lack of safety and security in an area full of scrapped cars.
