The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) announced the partial opening of a new intersection and service road on Huwar Street, as part of the Khalifa Avenue project. The new intersection will provide new entrances on Huwar Street with Al Furousiya Street and Al Luqta Street along with a new connection to Al Luqta Area and Qatar Foundation, in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.

Engineer Abdullah Qasim, from the Highway Project Department, confirmed that the new signalized intersection will be opened partially alongside the service road on Huwar Street to provide entrances and exits to Al Luqta area from one side and Qatar Foundation from the other side and they will link Al Furousiya Street and Al Luqta Street all the way to Al Gharrafa area which will improve the traffic.

New Intersection, Service Road on Huwar Street Within Khalifa Avenue Project

Eng. Abdullah Qassim stated as well that Ashghal has accomplished about 95 percent of the works on the Khalifa Avenue project and that the project is scheduled to be completed within the year. He pointed out as well that most parts of the project have been opened to traffic, which contributed immensely to improving the traffic in the area since the project connects Al Rayyan road with Dukhan road, as well as Al Gharrafa Street, Huwar Street, and Al Furousiya Street while serving Al Rayyan, Bani Hajer, Al Gharrafa, Al Luqta, and Gharrafat Al Rayyan areas.

Eng. Qassim explained that Ashghal is currently working to complete Khalifa Avenue project, which is one of the main new arteries that will serve the east and west of the country and link them to central Doha, as well as the Education City Stadium, one of the 2022 World Cup stadiums.

Road users coming from Al Furousiya Street in the direction of Doha or Dukhan will be able to use the exit leading to the Tilted Intersection, and road users will also be able to make a U-turn or turn left at the new intersection to reach Qatar Foundation Gate No. 5.

As for road users coming from the Titled Intersection, they will be able to use the exit to go to Al Furousiya Street, make a U-turn, or turn right towards Qatar Foundation Gate No. 5.

The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the opening and requests all road users to abide by the existing speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
