Dar Al Handasah and SSH-designed Sheikh Jaber Causeway in Kuwait opens

The Sheikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah Causeway, which stretches across Kuwait Bay linking Shuwaikh Port to Subiyah New Town, has officially opened. 

One of the largest infrastructure projects in the GCC, the 48km-long causeway was built by lead regional architecture and construction practice Dar Al Handasah, with SSH serving as lead consultant. 

Connecting Kuwait Bay to the future financial hub and Silk City, the causeway is one of the longest sea bridges in the world -- of its 48km, 27 is allocated to the marine bridge structure. 

According to Eng. Soha Ashkenani, acting director general of Public Authority for Roads and Transportation (Part), the Sheikh Jaber Causeway is considered “one of the landmarks” in the country’s New Kuwait 2035 vision, an economic diversification mandate that is being rolled out in the country.
