As part of its efforts to improve the road network in Doha, the Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ is currently implementing a project to develop the main streets in Al Mirqab Al Jadeed, Al Sadd and Fareej Al Nasr, with a total length of 7 kilometres in order to enhance traffic flow and ease congestion throughout the area.

Engineer Mohammed Al Khaldi - Head of Doha City Section, Roads Projects Department at Ashghal, said that this area includes many commercial, residential and health facilities as well as schools and other public buildings. He added that the development of the these streets will help to ease traffic congestion as well as to increase traffic safety and enhance streets capacity by increasing the number of lanes in some streets from one lane to two lanes in each direction. The project includes Al Nasr Street, Al Kinana Street and Mohammed Bin Al Qasim Street, as well as other streets such as Zaid Al Khail Street, Al Basateen Street, Al Seyoul Street and Yasser Bin Ammar Street.

Infrastructure services will also be developed, including upgrading of the storm water drainage system, foul sewer drainage network, constructing a new TSE network to be used in irrigation, and protection of the existing electricity and telecommunications lines.

In order to reduce the impact of construction works on the area’s residents and visitors during the project construction period, the Public Works Authority studied and designed the implementation phases so as to complete the project in the shortest possible time. All entrances to residential areas and commercial establishments will be kept open, and alternative roads will be provided when any closure or diversion is implemented. Ashghal will also install signboards on site to alert drivers during the construction period.

Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the speed limits, and follow the road signs to ensure their and others safety. This project is part of a series of projects that Ashghal is implementing to improve the road network in the country. (Source)
