Kuwait’s Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmad Causeway Project is on track for completion in 2018. The bridge – also known as the Sheikh Jaber Bridge or Subiya Causeway – is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the GCC region.
The project involves construction of 2 sea bridges, one linked to Subbiyah and the other linked to Doha. The first bridge that will be linked to Subbiyah – considered as the main bridge – will stretch 37.5 km, starting from the Ghazali Street intersection and ending at the Subbiyah highway. The second bridge which will be linked to Doha will be 16 km and will pass through the Kuwait Bay area towards the west.
The project will also include 2 man-made islands of 30 hectares; one on the northern side and the other on the southern side of the bridge which will house maintenance and traffic emergency buildings, fueling stations and boat docks. The aim of the 35km structure is to reduce travel time between the capital and the new city .
