Kuwait’s Public Works Ministry has delayed to 8 November the tender closing date for two road building contracts.

The previous closing date was 25 October, which had been extended from the original closing date of 23 August. The delays have given bidders more time to prepare their prices.

The first contract involves building a junction on Fahaheel road leading to south Sabahiya and Mangaf.

The second is to build 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 (MEED 3:9:09).
