KUWAIT CITY, Aug 17: The people living in Jahra feel their joy of seeing the opening of a new building for the traffic department is short lived because the reality is that there are several shortcomings such as the lack of parking place for visitors who number approximately 1,000 on a daily basis and especially parking for people with special needs, reports Al-Rai daily. The daily quoting sources said the traffic department in Jahra operates from a prefabricated house since the 1980s and any hope of trouble-free better place seems to have gone with the wind. Another source who spoke to the daily, but refused to give his name, pointed out that the new building will be furnished by moving furniture from the old buildings because the funds are not enough.
Meanwhile, Assistant Undersecretary for Postal Affairs at Ministry of Communications Buthaina Al-Subaie announced that the postal sector of the ministry has started implementing an emergency plan to handle the mail that arrived in the country during the official holidays, reports Aljarida daily. She explained that the emergency plan is being implemented by a team of officials and employees of the postal sector under the leadership of the sector head. Work is ongoing to handle and sort the mail that arrived during Eid Al-Adha holidays in order to avoid delays in the delivery of mail to the recipients, and to expedite the delivery to the stakeholders. Al-Subaie affirmed that the plan was developed in order to ensure a postal service of speed and quality that meets the expectations of the public.
