KUWAIT CITY, May 27: The Minister of Public Works and Minister of State for Municipal Affairs, Dr. Noura Al-Mashaan, announced significant progress in the Cairo Street Development Project, which has now reached a 92.25% completion rate. During her inspection tour, Dr. Al-Mashaan reviewed the progress on the Second and Third Ring Roads, which are over 97% complete, with final coordination underway to open these roads to the public.

In a press statement, Dr. Al-Mashaan emphasized the ministry’s commitment to providing top-notch infrastructure to meet Kuwait’s growing needs. “The completion of 92% of the Cairo Street development project represents a bright spot in our efforts towards achieving this goal,” she remarked.

Dr. Al-Mashaan received a detailed briefing on the challenges that had previously slowed the project, particularly the relocation of long-standing services that had been in place for over 50 years. With most obstacles resolved, the project is now entering its final phase, with Tunnel No. 2 slated for imminent opening.

The Minister praised the dedication of the Public Authority for Roads and Transportation and acknowledged the use of advanced technologies and modern equipment by the contractor, which ensured high standards of quality and efficiency in the asphalt work.

Dr. Al-Mashaan affirmed that the project is progressing according to the specified schedule and assured that the final stages will be completed on time, benefiting all citizens. “The final stages of the project are proceeding according to the specified schedule, and we will continue working to ensure that the completion and opening take place on the expected date,” she concluded.

The Cairo Street Development Project features an 11 km road network, including the construction of three tunnels, five vehicle bridges, a bypass bridge, five service bridges, and seven pedestrian bridges. It also includes infrastructure for water, rainwater, and sewage networks, a telephone network, street lighting, traffic control systems, and aesthetic landscaping.

The Public Authority for Roads and Transportation opened the first phase of the project on May 26, 2023, which included Tunnel No. 1, three vehicle bridges, and a bypass bridge connecting Al-Shaab and Hawalli. Tunnel No. 3, connecting Al-Dasma and Al-Mansouriya, is scheduled to open on May 23, 2024.
