Al Tarfa Street has been opened completely for traffic movement after completing the asphalt laying works, Ashghal has said.

The road was closed for more than 48 hours since Thursday midnight.
The opening marks the completion of an important part of the project to developing the roads surrounding Internal Security forces (ISF) camp in Al Duhail.
The project includes developing the roads surrounding the ISF camp in Al Duhail from three directions (north, east, and south) to accommodate the traffic movement in the area in addition to constructing and developing five intersections.
The project comprises a wide range of infrastructure development works in the area. It includes not only the widening of the roads and increasing the number of lanes but also providing service roads, car parking areas, and a surface water drainage system (for storm water). This is in addition to implementing micro-tunneling works for drainage networks and providing utility infrastructure for electricity and communications as well as an Intelligent Transport Systems and other works.
A large part of the project’s main works has been completed until now. At the beginning of 2016, Lebaib Roundabout was converted to a signalised intersection in addition to converting Jeryan Nejaima Roundabout near the North Atlantic College to a signalised intersection.
In July last year Ashghal opened the Arab League Street, which formed a main part of the project. In addition, works on Duhail Street were completed in the direction from Jeryan Nejaima Intersection to Al Shamal Road, to increase the number of lanes to three lanes, in mid-December.
Currently, micro-tunneling works of a sewage network in Duhail Street are underway. The project is expected to be completed in the second quarter this year.
