Kuwait signs $356 mn contract for Al Mutlaa Residential City flagship

Kuwait’s government has signed a contract worth a total of KWD 108.45 million ($356 million) for the project of Al Mutlaa Residential City, public works minister Jenan Ramadan said, according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).

This establishment, completion, and maintenance contract covers the development works of roads and intersections in the residential project, Jenan Ramadan, who is also the Minister of State for Housing Affairs, told Mubasher on Thursday.

Al Mutlaa Residential City is considered one of the vital projects that will link Al Mutlaa city with the highway network (Al Abdaly Highway/Subiya Expressway), as it will accommodate 70% of the traffic volume flowed from the city, Ramadan stated.

The Kuwaiti minister indicated that the contract reflects a new strategic dimension in line with Kuwait’s overall development plan, noting that it will boost the infrastructure of Al Mutlaa city as well as the roads network in North Kuwait according to the state’s organisational chart.

The Public Authority for Roads and Transportation plans to sign other contracts after finalising the legal and regulatory procedures to boost the transportation network in the northern area.
