KUWAIT CITY, Sept 5: The Council of Ministers commissioned the Kuwait Municipality to develop a final vision that would ensure that all existing conditions in the Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area are addressed, ensuring its organization in all aspects and the development of infrastructure, provided that this plan is completed within two weeks, reports Al-Qabas daily. According to the sources, the municipality will coordinate with a number of relevant authorities, most notably the ministries of Interior, Finance, Works, Electricity and Water to complete the necessary studies to implement plans to develop the area. The same sources indicated that the Council of Ministers reviewed the proposal for a project to develop Jleeb Al- Shuyoukh, given its deteriorating state, in terms of urban, planning, security and housing aspects. Putting the Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh development project among the government’s priorities during the coming period is due to its strategic location overlooking the Sixth Ring Road and close to vital sites such as Sabah Al-Salem University City, Jaber Al- Ahmad International Stadium and Kuwait International Airport, say sources.
According to the study completed by the Municipality and reviewed by the Council of Ministers, the study that was carried out on the area has re-planned it to be an upscale and distinguished neighborhood overlooking the new Kuwait University (Sabah Al-Salem University) in Al-Shaddadiyah area from the west, and overlooking the north on the Jaber Stadium, and for this new area near Kuwait Airport to be a luxury residential area After the development of the area, 1,838 housing units will be provided, as well as the elimination of the problem of communal quotas and security problems, amid warnings that the delay in the acquisition of this area will exacerbate its problems and increase its cost. The study confirmed the deteriorating state of the Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area in terms of urban, planning, security and population, especially within the areas designated for private housing, which turned to other uses other than what was planned for it, as it indicated a number of aspects, including high population density, unregulated high traffic density, low level of hygiene and the spread of dirt and rubbish, the spread of manifestations of destruction and distortion of public utilities, high crime rates and lawlessness, prevalence of building violations, parking chaos, crowding out families and the spread of diseases and epidemics.
The study said that the development of the region would achieve the following — addressing the imbalance in the demographics, improving the security and traffic situation and putting an end to the existing violations, preserving the excellence of the surrounding residential areas, in addition to other projects such as the university, Jaber Stadium and the international airport and utilizing the 19th and 20th plots to provide housing care, which were previously owned, and no specific use has been decided for them to date
