On Saturday, 9th February, 2013, ACI-KC Social Committee organized a visit for its members to the Jahra Road project which is currently under construction. Eng. Hazem Helmy, Quality Manager, of Arab Contractors, explained the background to the project, its design and the current status of on-site work. This was followed by visiting the precast yard, and some ongoing construction activities.

Reinforced concrete slabs, beams and other items used in the Jahra Highway Project are manufactured in a separate 150,0000 sq.m. yard with special technology which is being used for the first time in the Middle East Region.

The precast facility, the first ever precast yard for producing bridge segments in Kuwait, is a fully computerized and automated. The facility also houses the steel and segment mould factory.

The Jahra Road Development Project is located in the western region of Kuwait, which extends from the Jahra Gate (Jahra Gate Roundabout-Sheraton), to the United Nations Roundabout. The project valued at KD 264.7 million ($912.6 million approx) was started in September 2010 and is projected to finish January 2016.

It is also one of the main projects in the Ministry of Public Works strategic plan to develop roads and motorways in the State of Kuwait, in order to address future traffic demand, minimize congestion and improve road safety.
