The joint venture Rizzani de Eccher-OHL-Trevi-Boodai, led by Rizzani de Eccher, secured the Preferred Bidder Status for this mega infrastructure project worth in excess of USD 1.3 billion.
The project includes the substantial upgrade of this main traffic artery in the middle of Kuwait City. The road plan extends for over 14km linking the 4th Ring Road at the UN Roundabout with the city centre at the Sheraton Roundabout.
The scope of works to be undertaken by the joint venture is to upgrade the status of Jamal Abdul Nasser Street to that of an Express-Way through the construction of over 395,000sqm of viaducts made of prefabricated segments, which include six cloverleaf intersections and other pertaining structures.
The entire project must be executed with the minimum disruption of local vehicular traffic and without affecting the surrounding residential areas.
This challenging project will require the adoption of the most advanced construction techniques, allowing subsidiary DEAL to play a significant role as supplier of technology and special equipment for the prefabrication and erection of bridge segments.
Project completion is scheduled in 2016 with works commencing at the beginning of 2011.
