KD 1 per ton toll for trucks using Jaber Causeway from July 16

KUWAIT: A KD 1 per ton toll to be paid by trucks using Jaber Al-Ahmad Causeway and Doha Link will take effect starting July 16, Minister of Public Works Jenan Boushehri said yesterday. The Public Authority for Roads and Transportation (PART) has set regulations for truckers in a bid to ensure safety of the causeway and commuters, said Boushehri, also Minister of State for Housing Affairs, in a press release, pointing out that revenues expected will be allocated, in part, for the bridge’s maintenance and operation costs, as well as checks and supervision.

According to the release, the weigh-in and toll collection processes will take place at stations before the trucks enter the causeway, which will guarantee adequate traffic flow. It added that truck drivers choosing not to pay could use Road 80, then Road 801 to reach the northern area. The mega bridge cost approximately $3 billion, as it spans Kuwait Bay in two directions and comprises the Main Link, which connects Kuwait City with the future Silk City; and Doha Link, which connects Kuwait City with Doha and the Entertainment City. – KUNA
