Kuwait’s Public Works Ministry has invited prequalified contractors to bid by 23 August for two contracts to build roads.

Contractors are preparing to bid for the contract to build a junction on Fahaheel road leading to south Sabahiya and Mangaf.

Companies are also due to submit prices for a contract to construct a new crossroad on the fifth ring road leading to new residential areas in south Surra.

The prequalifiers for both packages are all local. They are Al-Dar Engineering & Construction Company, Arab Kuwait Contractors Company, Combined Group Contracting Company, Gulf United Construction Company, Kuwait Systems General Trading & Contracting Company, Medco General Trading & Contracting Company, Mubarak Hajeref General Trading and Contracting Company, and Mushrif Trading & Contracting Company.

The ministry is also tendering a contract to upgrade Jahra road to the west of Kuwait City. The closing date for bids is 1 September (MEED 30:7:09).

The successful bidder will build a 7.2-kilometre-long viaduct between Jahra Gate and the UN roundabout, and all other associated infrastructure works in the area.

It will connect to Kuwait University, several hospital buildings, the Defence Ministry, Sheik Port and other planned developments.
