KUWAIT: Ministry of Public Works Undersecretary Awatif Al-Ghunaim said a trial surface was laid on Jassim Al- Kharafi Road (Sixth Ring Road) with a new asphalt mix that was designed by a British laboratory to solve the problem of ‘flying pebbles.’ She said this mix will be added to all future tenders for road maintenance.

She said that the trial road that was paved is located from station 10 to station 9 towards the east on Jassim Al-Kharafi road that extends to Messila, adding that the mix was spread in order to expose it to traffic loads and the atmosphere to check their effects on it. —Al-Anbaa
