The Jamal Abdul Nasser Project (also known as RA 167) is one of the major infrastructures and road development projects taking place in the State of Kuwait and is part of the Ministry of Public Works strategic plans to enhance motorways and roads in the State of Kuwait.

The project is a substantial upgrade of the main traffic artery of Kuwait City. The aim was to upgrade the status of Jamal Abdul Nasser Street to that of an expressway through the construction of over 370,000 m² of segmental viaducts, including four interchanges and other pertaining structures.

The Project has transformed and upgraded the existing street into a motorway that adheres to international standards. 50 years of future traffic flow is accommodated by providing a series of complex bridges and elevated highways along the length of the project and at intersections.
