As part of ongoing works on the Lusail Expressway project, the Public Works Authority 'Ashghal' has announced the opening of a new entrance to Katara Cultural Village from Al Lusail Street.


The new entrance will provide a second entry into Katara and will help to ease congestion in the area by enabling northbound traffic to enter Katara without queuing at the roundabout.

On 22 December, the authority will close the existing entrance to Katara via the Lagoon Roundabout to complete vital construction works between Lusail Street and Katara. The closure will allow a work-zone for the construction of the Lusail Expressway and the metro station. The existing exit from Katara at the roundabout will remain open throughout.

Once the closure is in place, vehicles traveling southbound will be required to make a U-turn at Al Gassar Junction to access Katara.

Throughout the construction period, two lanes will remain open to traffic in both directions on Lusail Street. Additionally, the existing right turn lane from Legtaifiya Street on to Lusail Street will remain open. Commuters can use a new slip road for travelling southbound and turning west along Legtaifiya Street.

Ashghal advises drivers to pay attention to the new signage that will be placed to direct them to the new Katara entrance, and to be cautious and drive slowly to ensure safe travel on the route during construction.
