KUWAIT: Most restoration works of the 11-km-long Cairo Street, one of Kuwait’s main roads, have been finalized and the remaining tasks are proceeding according to schedule, the minister of public works announced on Monday. Speaking after she inspected the worksites, Dr Noura Al-Mashaan, also Minister of Municipality, said 92.2 percent of the project has been executed, affirming that the venture is in line with the state’s approach to provide citizens with top-notch public services.

“This is a bright stage in our efforts to attain the objective of providing an excellent infrastructure,” said Mashaan, referring to the Cairo Street project that covers the construction of three tunnels and six causeways. It also includes building seven pedestrian bridges, water and rain networks, phone communications, lighting, traffic signs and urban greenery.
