Jaber Stadium to be ready for opening by year-end

After several years of delay, the Jaber Stadium will be ready for opening by the year-end, said Sheikh Salman Al-Humoud Al-Sabah, the Minister of Information and State Minister for Youth and Sports.

The Minister also said that the Cabinet has decided to refer all parties responsible for the malfunctioning of the stadium to public prosecution for investigation.

In the meanwhile, the Public Works Ministry has obtained official approvals for construction of Jaber Bridge (earlier known as Subbiya Bridge), including the approval by oil sector, said Ahmad Al-Jassar, the Minister of Public Works and Minister of Water and Electricity.

The Minister spoke in response to queries raised by an MP about allegations that Jaber Bridge was built on an oil well in Kuwait Bay.
