Al Banna added that the project also involves relocating the U-turn on Kuwait Street to lengthen the storage lane. “This change will enhance traffic flow and cut down delays by 30 per cent at the junction of Kuwait Street and 12A Street. It will reduce queueing and waiting times for vehicles. Moreover, the removal of the overlapping traffic movement from 10C Street to 12A Street will improve safety on Kuwait Street.”

He said: “The improvements contribute to smoother traffic flow and easier movement throughout Al Mankhool and its surrounding areas, benefiting around 130,000 residents and school-goers. Al Mankhool is a vital commercial area, home to numerous service companies in the hotels and hospitality sector, hospitals, and various retail and wholesale outlets.”
