The bridge and structural works on the northern access interchange to the Hamad Port are now complete, according to a report published in the April issue of the official in-house publication of Ashghal.

The 2.7km long project is part of the first stretch of the more than 150km long New Highway and Truck route, connecting the port with Ras Laffan Industrial City.

The final block of the 970 segments of the bridge, each of which weighs approximately 67 tonnes, was installed recently. According to the report, the multi-level interchange is around 57% complete and Ashghal is expecting the intersection to be open for public use in the penultimate quarter of this year.

Between Al Wakra and Mesaieed Industrial City, the northern access interchange to the Hamad Port will provide four lanes in each direction from the port to Al Wukair bypass, providing an efficient link for heavy goods vehicles to access the East West Corridor and the Industrial Area.

It will also provide an additional four lanes in each direction to Mesaieed Road to enable free flowing transit between Doha and Mesaieed.
