Improving Ease-of-Doing-Business in the Mining Sector



To meet the economic growth and the increasing traffic in Kuwait city, the Public Authority for Roads and Transportation (PART) has launched the study of upgrading Route 30 - Fahaheel Expressway. The project aims to identify a transportation master plan leading to the development of an effective solution that will assist in decongesting one of the most important link between Kuwait City and the Satellite Cities of Ahmadi, Fahaheel, Fintas and others.

For the next 2 years, Khatib & Alami (K&A), in association with Kuwait Technical Consulting Bureau (KTCB), will conduct the feasibility study and concept design for the improvement of Route 30 - Fahaheel Expressway.

The Route 30 project is PART’s flagship project to link the satellite cities of Kuwait and transform them into well-connected transportation hubs.

Our most experienced specialists from transportation to structural, architecture, utilities and geotechnical sectors will propose the most feasible, functional, constructible and aesthetically pleasant solution to the urban context of the four governorates.

During the first phase, K&A will review Route 30 – Fahaheel’s existing and potential conditions and explore many possibilities, encompassing transportation, urban design, environmental and economic development objectives, based on the actual Kuwait master plan.

Several options will be examined, including proposing an elevated viaduct in some sections aiming at favoring long distance trips over local trips with the main goal of shortening travel time between Kuwait city and Ahmadi, upgrading 22 interchanges and free flow interchanges, in addition to the upgrading of 19 pedestrian bridges. Directional ramps may be considered.

A multi-criteria analysis will be carried out and a feasibility study will be conducted to select the best option.

In the second phase, K&A will proceed with the concept design of roads and interchanges, structures and associated services, as well as with the utility diversions when required.

The success of this challenging study will further strengthen K&A’s established relationship with PART, Kuwait Municipality, Ministry of Public Works, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Electricity and Water Works and other involved stakeholders.
