KUWAIT CITY, Nov 28: The Public Authority for Roads and Land Transport (PART) said the cost of projects currently under design at the authority and to be implemented during the next 15 years, are worth 5 billion dinars, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The sources indicated that the authority is currently reviewing and setting a new timetable for the plan for these projects based on priority. The sources stated the projects, topped by the railway project, currently are in the design mode. The complete railway design has been already sent to the Central Agency for Public Tenders, as well as the East Raqqa Roads Project, which includes the implementation of service roads for the region, and its implementation is expected to begin next year. The sources explained that the list also includes the development of the Third Ring Road, Fahaheel Road, and the Fourth Ring Road, all of which are currently subject to a review and studies, either due to cost-related problems or objection from other parties, as happened before, which the Municipal Council recently refused to study.

The sources pointed out that among the projects are the Kabd and Sulaibiya roads and the service roads for the southern Sa’ad Al-Abdullah area as a new area, as a road will be implemented that will be an extension of Ring Road 6.5, in addition to the regional road projects in the north and south of the country, which link Kuwait with the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, including the Abdali Road — the first phase of which has been implemented, and the Northern Regional Road, part of which has been implemented. The sources said that the delay in the completion of the entire regional roads, despite the completion of their studies years ago, is due to a lack of budgets, so the entire plan is currently being reviewed, to arrange projects in order of priority.
