Al Ghouse Road

General Project Information

Overall Project Objective

As a part of Ministry of Public Works plan to improve and upgrade the urban roads
infrastructures of Kuwait in order to meet the increasing traffic demands and accommodate development programs, MPW has decided to launch the ” Study, Design & Construction supervision for the construction and Maintenance for the Upgrading of Al Ghouse road”.

Although the Kuwait road network developed over the last 30 years is of a high standard, the increasing car ownership associated with new and proposed urban needs have placed greater demands on the motorway system which are now resulting in traffic congestion and travel time delays at a significant number of interchanges, especially those equipped with traffic signal installations.

Al Ghouse Road is a dual carriageway with various numbers of lanes depending on the concerned sections. It runs parallel to Fahaheel Expressway (Route 30) and King Fahed Ben Abdul Aziz Road (Route 40).

A majority of the intersections are at present controlled by traffic signals and Al Ghouse Road therefore functions as major collector road as part of the Primary Road Network in hierarchy, distributing the local traffic to major road network including Route 30 and Route 40.

As running parallel to Route 30 and Route 40, the upgraded Al Ghouse Road could be an alternate road carrying traffic between the south most end of Kuwait Metropolitan area and Al Ahmadi industrial area.
