Yarmouk infrastructure project inked at a cost of KD 10.945 mn

Al-Enezi stressed that the Ministry, under the guidance of the Minister of Public Works and the Minister of State for Municipal Affairs, Dr. Noura Al-Mashaan, is keen to implement contracts within the specified dates. Especially infrastructure contracts, due to their importance in developing and modernizing services in residential areas, which in turn contribute to raising the standard of well-being and living of citizens. He explained that the contract to improve the infrastructure in Yarmouk has a contractual cost of 10.945 million dinars and was signed on March 10, revealing that work began on April 2. He said that television filming is currently being done to ensure the safety of rain drainage and the network and maintenance work that will be carried out, including laying asphalt and other services.

He added that the duration of the contract is three years and is scheduled to be completed on April 2, 2027, followed by the maintenance phase of the works that have been implemented. He added: “We hope that the people of Yarmouk will cooperate with us in enduring the inconvenience that the contract works will cause, such as digging and breaking tiles, etc., as we are all seeking to achieve the public good.” He explained that the contract work includes replacing the entire sewage network, in addition to replacing parts of the rain, telephone, and lighting networks, the final asphalt layer, tiles, and water lines for the irrigation networks. He pointed out: “As part of our commitment to educating and informing citizens about the project, we have placed information panels at the three entrances to the area.

The project’s advisory body is keen to communicate with the residents of the region, listen to their suggestions and complaints, and respond to their inquiries. A work plan and media team were developed in cooperation with the Yarmouk Cooperative Society to play this important role from the beginning of the project until its end. Difficulties were identified, including the presence of service buildings, traffic density, narrow streets, and canopies in front of homes. We are committed to returning them to their original condition after the work is completed, within the terms of the contract. This is in addition to the presence of housing in the construction stages and sidewalks covered with trees. Trees will not be removed unless absolutely necessary, which will hinder the implementation of the work, and the central island in the area will also be removed. Among the difficulties that companies will face are parking on sidewalks and official working hours during the summer, which are determined by the Ministry of Social Affairs. It will be adhered to in relation to the laws of the country. Work will be suspended during peak traffic times in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior.
