The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) on Monday opened a new bridge extending from the F-Ring Road to Mesaimeer Road. This bridge provides a direct route to Abu Hamour, Al Mamoura and Salwa Road.

Ashghal pointed out that two additional temporary lanes will be available for vehicles for making a U-turn to F-Ring Road under the bridge to reach Barwa Village, the Religious Complex, Al Wakra and Industrial Area using the new service road which is about a kilometre long. Additionally, there are two lanes to make a U-turn under the bridge in front of Al Jazeera Academy, providing access to this area through the service road.

This bridge is a vital part of Rawdat Al Khail Road project, which aims to enhance traffic flow and ease traffic jam in the area. It will also connect Industrial Area with Doha city centre and make it easier to reach Barwa Village and the commercial area. It also connects the F-Ring Road with the Wholesale Market and Mesaimeer Street.

The opening was attended by Eng Nasser bin Ali Al Mawlawi, President of Ashghal, Eng Jalal Yousef Al Salhi, Director of Infrastructure Affairs, Eng Nasser Ghaith Al Kuwari, Manager of the Expressway Projects Department, and Eng Yousef Al Emadi, Manager of the Roads Maintenance Department at Ashghal.

From the Traffic Department, in attendance were Brigadier Mohamed Saad Al Kharji, Director of Traffic Department, Brigadier Mohamed Marafi, head of Planning and Traffic Safety, and Abdulrahman bin Abdullah Al Khulaifi the Member of the Central Municipal Council and representative of 10th constituency.

Abdullah Dhafer Al Hajri, the first Qatari national who passed the bridge right after its opening, praised the new bridge and highlighted its importance in ensuring smooth traffic, especially traffic from Hamad International Airport (HIA) and Al Wakra towards Doha.

The bridge with the road connected to it will allow movement easily and directly from Al Waab, Salwa Road, Bu Hamour and Al Maamoura to Al Thumama, HIA and the Corniche.

The bridge along with F-Ring Road will provide a 14-km free-flow highway without any traffic signals, which will enhance traffic and provides easy access to and from vital areas such as HIA, Salwa Road, Bu Hamour, Al Maamoura and Al Thumama.

The closed exits of Rawdat Al Khalfat, Rawdat Al Dabdaba, Al Kharija Street and Al Rabyat Street will be opened shortly.

The bridge with F-Ring Road extension will make access to important destinations and schools easier and faster.

The Rawdat Al Khail Road project includes building an 8km dual carriageway road with three lanes in each direction in addition to six multi-level interchanges.,

They include East Industrial Interchange, Karwa Interchange, Barwa Interchange, Barwa Village Access Interchange, Woqod Interchange, and Al Jazeera Interchange on F-Ring Road. (Source)
