The basic structure of Kuwait International Airport’s new terminal is 35 percent complete, a senior government official has revealed.
Kuwait’s Minister of Public Works, Abdulrahman Al-Mutawaa, said construction works are proceeding as scheduled, adding that “a grand project” such as the terminal would require “a considerable amount of time and effort to complete”.
Al-Mutawaa also confirmed that the project would be completed in four years, instead of the initial estimated completion of six years.
Worth US$4.2 billion, the project is being developed by Limak and local construction firm, Kharafi National.
Both companies won the construction deal after offering the lowest bid of US$4.34 billion in 2015.
The Emir of Kuwait, the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan inaugurated the project in May.
