Kuwait’s Public Works Ministry has received bids for an estimated $68m contract to build and maintain drainage lines for the Jahra road to the west of Kuwait City.

The ministry received bids from eight contractors to construct and maintain the main sanitary drainage lines from the UN roundabout to the Kazema camps crossroads on the Jahra road.

The local Green Line General Trading & Contracting Company submitted the lowest bid with a price of KD19.8m ($68m). This was 29 per cent lower than the KD27.9m price submitted by the second lowest bidder, the local Mushrif Trading & Contracting.

The local Ahmadiah Contracting & Trading Company submitted the third lowest bid with a price of KD28.6m.

The other bidders, all local, are:

  • Kuwait Company for Process Plant Construction & Contracting (KCPC)
  • Burhan International Construction Company
  • Mohammed Abdulmohsin al-Kharafi & Sons
  • First Kuwaiti General Trading & Contracting Company
  • Combined Group Contracting Company

In May, the ministry awarded a KD39.4m contract to the local Combined Group Contracting Company (CGC) to build intersections on the sixth ring-road serving the Jahra residential area.

Combined Group will build and maintain intersections on the sixth ring-road leading to the new residential areas.
