The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced today a partial opening for the Sheraton junction as of next Sunday, March 9, 2014, when the street between Post Office junction and Dafna Roundabout will be open to drivers nonstop in both directions with no traffic signals.

Commuters using the road leading from the Post Office junction to Dafna roundabout cannot turn left to enter Al-Fundoq Street and Al Taawon junction, they rather have to head towards Dafna roundabout and take a U-turn to access Al-Fundoq Street at the Sheraton Junction.

Alternatively, drivers from Al-Fundoq Street will not be able to turn left in the direction of Dafna, but they should drive right till the Post Office Junction and make a U-turn.

This development is part of a project consisting of three lane dual carriageways on the Corniche Street including three lanes towards City Centre Mall and three lanes towards Omar Al Mukhtar Street, in addition to the side roads to the right of signals. The work also includes creating a signalised pedestrian crossing between the two intersections to access the new Qatar International Exhibition Centre and other government buildings located in this area without a need to make a U-turn from Al Dafna intersection.

All necessary road signs have been installed in the area to provide clear directions for commuters. Ashghal has urged all road users to respect traffic rules and regulations for their safety and the safety of others.

Ashghal has previously completed converting roundabouts on Al Corniche Street, Al Markhiya Street and Al Bidaa Street to signalised intersections, namely: Museum of Islamic Art Roundabout, Grand Hamad Street Intersection, Al Diwan Roundabout, National Theatre Roundabout, Ludaihi Roundabout, Q Post Roundabout, Wadi Al Sail Roundabout, Onaiza Roundabout and Lejbailat Roundabout
