ROAD-CLOSURE

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced a partial closure for eight months from Friday on one direction of Wadi Al Askar Street, from its intersection with Wadi Leawaina Street to the intersection with Wadi Al Ebb Street.

This is in addition to the partial closure on one direction of Wadi Zekreet Street, from its intersection with Wadi Al Ebb Street to the intersection with Wadi Leawaina Street, reported the Gulf Times.

The project includes developing the local roads and constructing pedestrian lanes, installing new traffic lights, in addition to upgrading the stormwater, sewage, potable water, and irrigation networks.

During the closure, users of the Wadi Leawaina Street heading north towards Wadi Al Askar Street will have to continue straight, turn right into Wadi Zekreet Street and then head towards the required destination. Traffic coming from Al Kheesa on Wadi Leawaina Street and heading to Wadi Al Askar Street will have to use the traffic signal at the intersection between Wadi Al Askar/Wadi Leawaina streets and take a U-turn back to Wadi Zekreet Street to reach their destination.

The closure, to be implemented in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, is part of the Roads and Infrastructure Development Project in Al Ebb and Leabib Package three. The aim is to upgrade and enhance traffic safety on Wadi Al Askar and Wadi Zekreet streets.
