(MENAFN - Arab Times) Director of Highway and Bridge Maintenance at Ministry of Public Works Engineer Raja Al-Momen disclosed that the ministry has started asphalting the roads affected by flying pebbles, in compliance with directives from the sector minister Engineer Abdul-Aziz Al- Ibrahim, reports Al-Seyassah daily



Engineer Al-Momen made the disclosure during field inspection tour he made to check the ongoing maintenance works along Maghrib Road. She declared the officials will intensify maintenance activities to complete the needful within one month, so that the fading away of asphalt will become history. She said the ministry has laid down a comprehensive schedule to work on the roads, while each road needs about three days to complete



She hopes that citizens and expatriates will cooperate with the ministry to end the phenomenon by tolerating the resultant traffic congestion. She revealed that government and the fact-finding committee in charge of reviewing the situation and its causes have been working together to study the last layer of roads. She explained the officers have used the method to discover the most concrete layer that can stand the weather in Kuwai



There are reports about commercial cheating and hikes in the prices of fish in Mubarakiya and Sharq markets, reports Al-Shahid daily quoting sources. The Ministry of Commerce, Kuwait Municipality and Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources have since been addressed to intensify supervision and control the prices of fish and shrimps



Also, the suppliers are required to present health certificates and specify the countries of origin of fish and shrimps imported, given that a quantity of the supplies arrive in the country via the land borders. Sources indicated some traders import frozen fish from countries such as India and Pakistan to market them in neighboring countries and deceive consumers the products are actually from the Gulf. They stressed the need for strict supervision in the Kuwait markets to checkout rotten fish and shrimps
