A traffic diversion will be in place from Friday (December 11) near the Tilted Roundabout on the directions connecting Al Luqta, Huwar, and Al Gharrafa roads.
The Publich Works Authority (Ashghal) has said the Tilted Roundabout detour will not affect traffic flow in the area as there will be no changes on the route except the modified roundabout alignment connecting with existing roads (as shown in the attached map).
The diversion is required to complete construction works on the proposed Dukhan Highway (East) Project. The works include the construction of a two-level interchange at the centre of the Tilted Roundabout.
The first level encompasses an underpass along Al Gharrafa Road that extends south from Old al-Rayyan Street roundabout connecting with Huwar Street and reaching Jassim Bin Thani roundabout, North of Al Gharrafa.
The ground level includes the construction of a signal-controlled intersection.
The Dukhan Highway East project is part of Ashghal’s Expressway Programme and runs from Al Wajba Palace Interchange (west) to the Tilted Interchange (East) and along Al Gharrafa Road from Al Rayyan Street (south) to Thani Bin Jasim Street (north).
The project encompasses approximately 7.5km consisting of 4 lanes in each direction along Dukhan Highway East, 3km along Al Gharaffa Road and 6 multi-level interchanges as well as service roads and additional lanes on some parts of the road.
This with Dukhan Highway Central will create a strategic East-West Highway connecting Dukhan on the west with Doha.
