KUWAIT CITY, March 12: The Ministry of Public Works announced the withdrawal of 52 samples from various asphalt factories and sites across the country as part of its ongoing efforts to monitor the quality of asphalt production and road maintenance, reports Al-Jarida daily. These samples underwent 79 tests at road laboratories to ensure compliance with quality standards. Additionally, the ministry conducted 607 visits to asphalt factories, issuing six certificates related to factory calibration in February. Sources within the Ministry emphasized its commitment to addressing complaints from citizens and residents, particularly concerning road maintenance. These complaints are promptly addressed, with maintenance teams dispatched to carry out necessary repairs across the country’s governorates.

Specialized teams analyze maintenance needs swiftly, followed by appropriate action and repairs guided by expert insight. Dr. Noura Al-Mashaan, Minister of Public Works and Minister of State for Municipal Affairs, is expected to announce two new contracts for essential maintenance projects shortly. These projects signify a comprehensive approach to maintenance, encompassing not only interior areas but also major highways.

Recent initiatives include maintenance work on key highways, including Al-Salmi Road, the Sixth and Seventh Ring Road, Subiya Road, King Fahd Road, Al-Fahaheel Road, Al-Jahra, Abdali, and various ring roads and intersections. These endeavors aim to enhance the efficiency of highway infrastructure, asphalt quality, pothole treatment, bridge expansion joint maintenance, and rainwater sewer network cleaning.
