KUWAIT CITY, Jan 25: According to sources within the Ministry of Public Works, an allocation of 83.072 million dinars has been designated for the implementation of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) system in the Kuwait Airport Terminal (T2) project. This funding is part of the reserve item for works, and the ministry, particularly the major projects sector, collaborated with the Public Administration of Civil Aviation, the project’s beneficiary.

The project’s data communications network equipment system will be implemented through an American company specified in the contractual documents. In a related development, the Ministry has formed an investigation committee to examine the Information Technology system and a separate local network for the Ministry of Interior in the Package (1) project. The committee determined the necessity of a distinct network for the Ministry of Interior, leading to ongoing coordination with the ministry’s representatives. This is in preparation for obtaining regulatory approvals for the change order associated with these works.

On a separate note, sources revealed four active contracts for road maintenance totaling 14.9 million dinars. These contracts aim to address urgent maintenance needs in critical areas with issues such as potholes and flying asphalt. Some of these contracts are nearing expiration, with one already expired at the end of this month for road maintenance in Farwaniya Governorate (main roads – Khaitan – Farwaniya) at a total value of 5.280 million dinars. Another contract is set to expire in May for road maintenance in agricultural areas in the southern region, costing 1.797 million dinars.

The last two contracts for road maintenance in Hawalli, totaling 5.992 million dinars, will conclude in June, while the contract for road maintenance in agricultural areas in the northern region, valued at 1.811 million dinars, will conclude in August. With these contracts on the verge of expiration, there is a pressing need to expedite the offering of road maintenance projects recently announced by the ministry. Delays could exacerbate the crisis, leading to deteriorating road conditions and posing risks to the safety of citizens, residents, and their property.
