The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will close part of Al Hazm Street connecting to the southbound traffic lanes on Al Gharrafa Street for three weeks from today, in cooperation with the Traffic Police Department.

Motorists travelling south on Al Gharrafa Street can access the local area by taking an earlier exit onto Al Anhar Street, as shown in the map.

The closure is required to convert the junction between Al Gharrafa Street and Al Hazm Street to a traffic signalised intersection.

Oqba Bin Nafie Street

Ashghal will also implement a temporary closure on Oqba Bin Nafie Street that intersects with Najma Street from today for three weeks.

Motorists travelling on Najma Street can access the local area by taking the next exit onto Ahmad Bin Hanbal Street before D-Ring Road and Najma Street Junction.

The closure is required to enable construction works on part of the new signalised junction.

West Industrial Street

Ashghal has announced a traffic diversion on West Industrial Street from RA No. 15 to RA No. 2.

Two new lanes in each direction will remain open starting this evening for six months.

Access roads to local and residential areas will remain open.

The diversion is part of construction works to upgrade Doha’s Industrial Area to increase the capacity of roads, support higher traffic, and provide the Industrial Area with a full integrated infrastructure.

Wholesale Market Street

The Public Works Authority will put in place a temporary closure on part of Wholesale Market Street in both directions, from the Mesaimeer Passport and Immigration Office to near the entrance of Al Jazeera Academy.

Part of Mesaimeer Road between Rawdat Al Khail Street and Al Erbayyat Road will also be closed.

The closure will be implemented in two phases, in coordination with the Traffic Police Department. The first phase will be tomorrow from 1am to 4pm on Sunday.

The second phase will be from June 2 from 11pm to 4am on June 5.

Motorists travelling to Bu Hamour, Ain Khalid, the Wholesale Market and Al Thumama areas will be able to use Rawdat Al Khail Street or the alternatives routes.

The partial closure of Wholesale Market Street and Mesaimeer Road is required to complete utilities ducts and other works on the Rawdat Al Khail Street Extension project.

Ashghal will install signs for motorists and has urged road users to abide by speed limits at 80kmph along Al Gharrafa Street and follow signs for their and others’ safety. (Source)
