Authorities still cleaning Doha intersection; flaws cited in underpass


The new blend of asphalt has not yet been tested in order to be described as a failure, reports Al-Rai daily quoting informed sources from Ministry of Public Works.



They stressed that the new blend, which includes polymer substances,

has not been used yet due to the long time required for carrying out the procedures that precede the use of the blend as well as the time needed by the asphalt factory to prepare the new blend.

The sources affirmed that the problem of flying gravel is prevalent on roads that were built many years ago and have not been maintained for years.

They stressed the keenness of Ministry of Public Works to remove all remnants of the rain from the streets with the cooperation of Kuwait Municipality and other relevant bodies.

The sources explained that the roads that sustained damages due to the rains and are still under guarantee will be repaired by the same contractor at his own expense.

For the repair of the other roads, new tenders will soon be floated.

Meanwhile, Public Authority for Road and Transportation (PART) is still removing rainwater that flooded the Doha intersection and Seventh Ring Road using tankers and special equipment.



The report on the investigations conducted on the flooding of Mangaf Underpass in 2017 reveal some mistakes and highlight the weak monitoring and supervising by the concerned authorities particularly Ministry of Public Works.
