The Public Works Authority "Ashghal" announced the commencement of upgrading works on Al Wukair Road, as part of the Interim Road Improvement in South of Doha Area - Phase 2, and these works are scheduled to be fully completed in the first quarter of 2022.
These works aim to upgrade Al Wukair Road, at a length of 2 km, and convert two roundabouts into signalized intersections as well as develop infrastructure utilities services.
The project engineer in the Roads Projects Department in Ashghal Eng. Monira Al Mohannadi, emphasized the importance of this project and its significant location especially that it includes the upgrade of both the roundabout known as the Health Centre Roundabout and the roundabout known as Al Wakra Hospital Roundabout which are two of the most congested roundabouts in the area, adding that both roundabouts along with Al Wukair Road serve many service facilities, shops, commercial centers, and educational and health institutions.
Further to converting the two existing roundabouts into signalized intersections to improve the traffic flow in the area, the projects scope will include road developments in both directions of Al Wukair Road at a total length of 2 km, providing 4 km of pedestrian walkways and upgrading street lighting systems, she added.
