KUWAIT APPROVES EXPANSION OF SOUTH SAAD AL-ABDULLAH HOUSING PROJECT

KUWAIT, – The Municipal Council of Kuwait, on Monday, approved a request by the Public Authority for Housing Welfare, for expanding the South Saad Al-Abdullah housing project, adding 5.52 square kilometres from the west.

Thus, the total area of the project will be 64.42 square kilometres, Municipal Council Acting Director, Abdullah Al-Emadi, explained.

This expansion will add 3,500 housing units, to the project’s 40,000 ones, he said.

The Kuwait Oil Company (KOC), rejected expansion of the project from the east, Al-Emadi said.

A committee has been formed to remove the obstacles over the coming five years, he aid.
