Doha, – The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will close a 250 metre stretch of Al Wukair Temporary Street starting from Friday 7 April 2017. The permanent closure is required to expedite completion of a 22 kilometre main carriageway.

Road users travelling from Al Wukair Temporary Street towards the Religious Complex can turn right onto the newly constructed Umm Besher Interchange, go straight at the roundabout and turn right to continue towards F-Ring Road.

Road users travelling on Al Wukair Temporary Street from the F-Ring Road towards Al Wukair will be required to turn right and follow the diversion route along Barwa City, towards the newly constructed Jery Musabbeh Interchange to access Al Wukair Temporary Street.

The main carriageway is part of Ashghal’s East West Corridor Project. It will deliver five lanes in each direction, providing direct, free flow traffic between the Industrial Area and Hamad International Airport.

A significant section of main carriageway of Ashghal’s interfacing Al Wakra Bypass project and key interchanges on the East-West corridor project are also scheduled to open to public traffic over the next few months. Ashghal anticipates that this will improve traffic flows and direct accessibility to surrounding facilities.

The Public Works Authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety. (QNA)
