Roads Projects & Maintenance Director Raed Al Salah said, 'The two causeways located on Khalifa Al Kabeer Interchange with Sheikh Hamad Causeway, together with Seef and City Centre Causeways and the Central Market Causeways are now completed.'
‘What remains now is the maintenance of Sh. Isa bin Salman Causeway; where the painting of the upper part of the causeway has been postponed in coordination with the General Traffic Directorate until the end of the present school semester, for it requires the closure of one way on each direction,’ he stated.
‘Painting the causeway from underneath will also take time, as it should be done from the sea,’ Al Salah added.-TradeArabia News Service
