With the forecast for more rain and possibly also for another day, the Industrial Area residents are a worried lot. Each rain brings a saga of miseries to the residents along the streets, most of which are in a deplorable condition for several years now.

Though some infrastructural development works are being carried out in some of the streets, the muddy roads are flooded with craters, where water logging is a common sight for weeks after each rain.

The movement of vehicles through the area has been extremely difficult on account of such humiliating conditions and many of them have broken down in the middle of the roads while they were on the move.

Owing to awfully poor conditions of the streets, especially those on the eastern side, vehicular movement was so slow after rains lashed Doha and surroundings.

It resulted in severe traffic block before noon in the area where the movement of heavy vehicles has seen a sharp rise in recent months because of massive infrastructural developments on the south eastern side of the Industrial Area. One of the largest truck parks of the region is located at the south eastern end of the Industrial Area

"We fear that another spell of rains would bring more miseries to the residents and visitors to this place," said an employee of a foodstuff firm on Street 38.

The area has many warehouses of food grain companies and vehicular movement to the area is severely affected especially when it rains.
