3-shift system for Gov’t sector under study to cut traffic rush.

The Council of Ministers studied a proposal to implement the 3-period system for workers in the government sector, as part of proposals to confront the increasing traffic congestion on all roads in Kuwait with the return of school life, reports Al-Qabas daily. The proposal provides for the division of working hours as follows — the first period is from eight in the morning until two in the afternoon; the second period begins at 12 noon and ends at six in the evening and the third period starts from four in the afternoon until ten in the evening. According to the proposal, the application of the 3-shift system will lead to a reduction in requests during the first and second working periods, and reduce the number of vehicles to one third from four in the afternoon until ten in the evening, in addition to increasing employee productivity.

It is noteworthy that the Council of Ministers had assigned the Public Authority for Roads and Land Transport, in coordination with the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Works, the Ministry of Electricity and Water, the Kuwait Municipality, and the Public Authority for Agriculture and Fisheries Affairs, to complete the necessary procedures to ensure the implementation of urgent, medium and long-term solutions which guarantee addressing the existing problem of traffic congestion in the Sabah Al-Salem area, leading to the sustainability of the flow of roads leading to and from the area.
