Infrastructural projects in Kuwait are still in the focus of local governmental-backed investments. In order to improve connectivity regionally and globally projects in this sector are viewed as a state priority. A huge number of major infrastructural and transportation projects are connected to the Kuwait Development Plan 2015-2020. As a part of this plan, a refurbishment of the Nawaseeb Road is ongoing with reconstruction of 45 km of the six-lane dual carriageway with a provision of the space for future upgrade with addition of one lane in each direction.
Eight bridges out of nine are designed using precast concrete T-beams, which are manufactured at a special production site beside the road and not far from the respective construction sites. The ninth bridge is a combination between precast concrete T-beams and cast in-situ box girders.
The cooperation with Tecnocom worked very well. With them we had great partner in this project, who supported us with their knowledge in building moulds for high efficiency production.
