Trucks to pay to use causeway

KUWAIT: The Public Authority for Roads and Transportation (PART) said yesterday that truck drivers will start paying fees while using Sheikh Jaber Causeway from today. PART said in a press release that the fees for the transit of trucks on the bridge will be KD 1 per ton of the truck’s total weight, adding that payment will be collected at entrances in Shuwaikh, Doha and Subbiya. Truckers should comply with the compulsory route to the truck weighing station to pay the transit fee through bankcards or prepaid cards, as cash payment is unacceptable.
