The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that one lane in each direction on theE-Ring Road and Najma Street, intersecting at Al Thumama Roundabout, will be temporarily closed in approximately 400 meter sections.


A newely constructed temporary roundabout will allow traffic around the construction works inside the roundabout, as shown in the attached map. The closure will begin on Tuesday, 29September, 2015, and will last four months. The objective of this closure is to allow for the construction works needed to convert Al Thumama Roundabout to a signal-controlled junction, as part of the Interim Upgrade project on E-Ring Road and Najma Street, which will serve to reduce traffic congestion in the area. It’s worth mentioning that the project works will include widening the E-Ring Road and Najma Street, developing the infrastructure utilities, upgrading drainage networks in the area, in addition to providing pedestrian and cyclist paths, street lighting, and landscaping. Ashghal will install road signs to advice motorists of the closure. The authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limits, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
