KUWAIT: Kuwait Public Authority for Roads and Transportation (PART) announced a partial opening of the 6.5 ring road intersection with Ghazali Road early yesterday. The intersection is part of the 6.5 ring road, stretching over 800 meters with four lanes and two safety lanes of 20.2 meters, the authority said in a statement on Saturday.
It intersects with Ghazali Road with a lower road of 1,017 meters, which will be opened for cars coming from Shuwaikh Port, the airport and the air cargo service area, it added. It has three exits for cars coming from Ghazali towards Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, fifth and sixth exits towards Al-Jahra and from Abdullah Mubarak towards the airport and Kuwait City, PART noted.
The authority added that the 6.5 ring road project was completed by 92 percent last April and is expected to be fully launched by end of year. The project will improve traffic jams in the 6th ring road and will be key to ease traffic in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh as well, it said. The project will also create an intersection with the 6th ring road to provide an immediate entry to Sabah Al-Salem University City. – KUNA
