Ashghal instalation pedestrian bridge Al Markhiyya

The Public Works Authority 'Ashghal' has announced via their official Twitter that they will be installing a pedestrian bridge along Al Markhiyya Street. The new bridge will be connecting Umm Lekhba & Madinat Khalifa North. Aside from this, an underpass under Al Shamal Road will also be installed and will be between Umm Lekhba & Al Gharrafa. According to Ashghal, these projects are to promote pedestrian road safety and mobility throughout the area.

To give way to these installations, Ashghal announces an 8-hour closure on Al Markhiyya Street, specifically between Dahl Al Hamam Intersection and Umm Lekhba Interchange. The closure will begin this Friday, June 3rd, in the early hours of 2 am to 10 am.

Ashghal advises road users heading from Al Markhiya Street going to Sabah Al Ahmad Corridor through Umm Lekhba Underpass and Al Shamal Road to use Al Khafji Street and Duhail Interchange instead.
