The Public Works Authority, 'Ashghal' will put in place a temporary traffic diversion on Al Rayyan Road westbound from the direction of the Olympic Roundabout (Sports Roundabout) toward 22 February Intersection at the intersection of Jassim Bin Hamad with Al Rayyan Road.

Traffic traveling westbound from the direction of the Sports Roundabout, will be diverted onto a parallel and adjacent three-lane road that reconnects with Al Rayyan Road just before the 22 February Intersection (As shown in attached map). As such, no significant delays are expected there during the works, which will begin on Thursday 2 July 2015, and will Last 18 months.

This diversion will be in place to allow for the construction of an underpass beneath Al Rayyan Road as part of the upgrade and construction of Al Rayyan Road Project. The underpass will allow commuters coming from Al Rayyan Road and driving eastbound to access the Jassim Bin Hamad Street without having to drive to the Sports roundabout and allows traffic from Jassim Bin Hamad street to head east without the need to go through 22nd February intersection.

The current diversion which is around 800 metres in length will not affect commuter traffic in any way as it maintains the same number of lanes as the existing road.

Ashghal will install road signs to advise motorists of the diversion. The authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limits, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
