KUWAIT CITY, Feb 11: According to informed sources at the Ministry of Electricity, Water and Renewable Energy, Kuwait Municipality has addressed the ministry to bear all the costs of restoring the site of the current water filling station in Mangaf, Block 2 to what it was previously without demanding any compensation, after receiving the alternative site for the station. The sources explained that the municipality allocated two adjacent sites in Al- Muqwa, which is south of Dhahr next to the central slaughterhouse and the livestock market.

One of them is the site of a water filling station as an alternative to the current filling station within Mangaf Block 2, and the other is adjacent to the station and designated for consumer affairs services buildings and their annexes for Ahmadi Governorate, following Municipal Council’s Resolution No. MB/LD1/18/2019. The boundaries of the two adjacent sites allocated to the south of Dhahr are fixed. They were handed over to the representative of the ministry according to a receipt report.

The ministry intends to move the location of the Mangaf station due to the negative effects it has on the residents, as it is considered inappropriate from all technical aspects. It is adjacent to the fire station and causes congestion and traffic jams at the entrance and exit of the area to the highway, which moves the roundabout between the Sabahiya and Mangaf areas closed and very crowded most of the time. The presence of the station in this area also led to the deterioration of the roads surrounding it due to the large number of people passing through it, causing it to crack. It has reached the extent of making it difficult for any car to pass through it due to the large number of potholes on the roads near the pump. It is also causing inconvenience to citizens who have been lodging several complaints in this regard.
