The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has opened a new bridge and underpass at the Mesaimeer Interchange, where a new bridge has been partially opened to provide a free flow of traffic from Rawdat Al Khail Street to Industrial Area Road with a length of 1300 meters, and a 450-meter underpass has been opened to connect traffic coming from Doha Expressway towards the Industrial Area Road.

The opening resulted in removing the temporary traffic light that connects Rawdat Al Khail Street, Doha Expressway and Industrial Area Road, and they contributed to breaking traffic and achieving great traffic flow in the area.

The new openings contribute to improving traffic at the interchange, especially as the temporary main traffic light on the interchange was removed, which helped provide free traffic flow between Doha Expressway and E-Ring Road and Rawdat Al Khail Street with the industrial area road.

Two lanes were opened on the new bridge to connect those coming from Rawdat Al Khail Street towards the industrial area road directly. An underpass has also been opened to connect traffic coming from Doha Expressway.

The Mesaimeer Interchange is the first of its kind in Qatar connecting six main roads, namely E-Ring Road, Doha Expressway, southern part of Doha Expressway, Sabah Al Ahmed Corridor, Industrial Area Road and Rawdat Al Khail Street.

The interchange also provides a vital traffic link between the south, central and north of the country. It links traffic from the south through the southern part of Doha Expressway, main carriageway of Doha Expressway and Al Shamal Road.

It also connects traffic between Industrial area road and the heart of Doha through a connection to Rawdat Al Khail Street, which intersects with D ring and C Ring Road, as well as between the busy areas of Nuaija, Al Thumama, Bu Hamour, Al Maamoura, Mesaimeer providing an easy access to Al Wakra, Al Wukair and the Industrial area

It is located in a vital area that has many facilities including Al Thumama Stadium, one of the World Cup stadiums, where the interchange has three pedestrian bridges to ease peoples access to Al Thumama Stadium.

The interchange also serves many important educational, health and commercial facilities such as the Medical Commission, Meteorological Department, many schools, and health centers and nearby shopping malls.

The interchange also includes a sophisticated intelligent transport system where surveillance cameras and vehicle number monitor will be installed along with an emergency traffic system to ensure better traffic control in Qatar.
