SSH infrastructure director Mark Jamieson said: “The Subiyah Causeway project is a key project for SSH Infrastructure division. It not only comprises of the main bridge itself but also includes the construction of 2 artificial islands, 26 separate building structures and substantial changes to the existing infrastructure networks. This project highlights SSH’s ability to manage and supervise large-scale infrastructure projects as a leading consultant who is committed to the sustainable development of Kuwait.”
