Kuwait Metro project Phase 1 study nears completion

The study plans for first phase of metro project in Kuwait are nearing completion, and the approval of the Higher Committee for Government-sanctioned projects is awaited.

The approval is required before accepting bids for project before the year-end, said Adel Al-Roumi, the Director of Technical Apparatus for development projects.

The Committee will hold a meeting next month, and discuss about adopting and approving the bid papers, Al-Roumi said, when speaking on sidelines of a Kuwait-Japanese Businessmen Committee Meeting at KCCI (Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry).

The Kuwait metro project requires a vast infrastructure, and is bigger than Dubaiís Metro. The work on the project will begin next year, as soon as the bidding winner is announced.

The metro project is hoped to be fully complete by 2020. The plan aims to make the metro network accessible in all areas of Kuwait.
