Ashghal has started upgrade works at the Muaither Sports Club and Plastic roundabouts on Al Sailiya Road, which will eventually convert both roundabouts into signalised intersections.
The scope of works also involves the development of local roads (6km) and the construction of service roads as part of the Road Improvement Works for Junctions and Roundabouts in Various Areas of Greater Doha (Phase 9).
These works are part of Ashghal’s efforts to improve the existing service utilities and upgrade the road network in Doha city in order to respond to the national economic development and social growth requirements in Qatar.
The scope of works will also include providing pedestrian footpaths of around 12km in length, cycle paths at approximately the same length (12km), landscaping works and upgrading street lighting systems.
Further, the project will improve infrastructure utilities, such as the treated sewage effluent network and surface water drainage network, and will provide protection for the existing electricity and telecommunications cables.
Ashghal has also announced a partial closure on Al Asmakh Street in one direction, from Al Koot Fort Intersection to Al Asmakh Intersection, from July 28 for five months.
The closure has been announced to enable expansion and upgrade works on Al Asmakh Street within the Doha Central Development and Beautification Project – Package Three, Ashghal has said in a statement. It will be implemented in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.
During the closure period, road users wishing to travel in this direction on Al Asmakh Street can continue straight and use the alternative routes, as shown on the map, to reach their destinations.
Ashghal will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. It has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
