The Lebdaya Roundabout (known as Sheikh Mubarak Al Thani Roundabout) will be closed and introduce a newly built roundabout and diversion routes to the south east of the existing route. Ashghal will also close the roundabout exit from Huwar Street to Al Rayyan Al Qadeem Street, as shown on the attached map.
The diversion, which has been implemented in co-ordination with the Traffic Police Department, will be operational from Friday (October 21) and it would last for a period of two years.
The diversion is required to enable Ashghal to commence construction of essential multi-level junctions as part of the Al Rayyan Upgrade Project C2.
As shown on the attached map, Ashghal has established several alternative routes for road users to follow to reach their respective destinations.
Doha to Al Gharrafa: Road users can turn right at the Lebdaya Roundabout onto Al Beday Street and travel north before turning left onto the new Al Maqareen Street. Motorists will need to travel along Al Maqareen Street before turning right onto Huwar Street. Drivers from Al Gharrafa to Doha can follow the same route listed above in the opposite direction to reach their destination.
Doha to Bani Hajer: Road users can turn left at the Lebdaya Roundabout and travel south before turning right onto Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Road and continuing towards Bani Hajer.
Road users travelling from Bani Hajer to Doha will be unaffected, as they can continue to travel eastbound along Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Road.
Ashghal has said a significant section of Al Rayyan Al Qadeem Street will remain open for residential and local use, and U-turns will be provided at each end to facilitate transit to and from the area.
