Doha – The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will open a 2.5 kilometer stretch of new permanent road with three flyovers along Mesaieed Road, part of its Al Wakra Bypass Project in the south area of Qatar.

The opening marks another milestone on the project which is due to open part of its 11 kilometer main carriageway in the coming month.

Road users currently using the existing diversion of Mesaieed Road will be shifted on to the new section of road with two lanes in each direction. In coordination with the Traffic Police Department, the shift will be implemented in two phases starting with southbound traffic towards Mesaieed Road on Wednesday, followed by northbound traffic towards Al Wakra on Sunday.

Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the 50 kph speed limit and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.

Ashghal is expediting works for full completion on the Al Wakra Bypass Project which will deliver direct access to G Ring Road, connecting to the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route and the F Ring Road towards Hamad International Airport and Doha.
