The newly-installed traffic signals at Al Thumama intersection became partially operational from Sunday.

Work on the project, which is part of a major expansion, would take at least four more months to be completed, it is learnt.

The widening of E-Ring Road, which is being turned into a four-lane-a-side road, construction of the median, widening of Najma Street between the Mall Signal and Al Thumama intersection and installation of new traffic signal (Oqba bin Nafie Street) towards the Mathar Qadheem area are the other works to be completed as part of the road development under the ongoing project.
