Doha – The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) started implementing Phase 1 of Roads and Infrastructure in Al Shamal. As part of the project there will be a wide range of rehabilitation works for the existing local roads to transform them to developed roads that meet the population growth in Al Shamal. The project also includes building permanent developed roads and a new sewage network needed in the area to serve about 3600 business and residential buildings.

Works include providing roads connected to all houses in the area and upgrading existing roads, in addition to building roads that lead to all land plots that are not built yet. As part of the project, 40 km of new internal roads will be built and 80 km of existing roads will be rehabilitated, increasing their capacity. Works will also include installation of three traffic signals and 4500 lighting poles, and the construction of 12 intersections.

Construction works include 28 km of sidewalks and 8000 car parks, while 1000 signboards will be installed in the area, enhancing road users and pedestrians’ safety.

To reduce inconvenience caused by the project works, Ashghal will put a plan to meet all requirements of residents, schools and business owners specifically during this period. Also safety barriers will be put to separate residential and work areas. Dust and noise control works will also take place and Qatar Construction Specifications 2014 will be followed to ensure the highest standards are met in all construction works. (QNA)
