Ashghal, the Public Works Authority, will close on Saturday a one-km section of the Temporary Truck Route (TTR) and shift road users onto a newly opened section of the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route, it was announced.
The road change, which is located to the north of the Dukhan Highway-New Orbital Highway interchange in the Umm Al Afai Area, has been planned in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.
The diversion will form part of the permanent New Orbital Highway road network. As part of this diversion, Ashghal will need to close a temporary access route from the TTR to the Mall of Qatar. The closure of the temporary access route is required to construct a multi-level junction including a permanent ramp bridge that will more efficiently connect road users from the New Orbital Highway into the Mall of Qatar.
Ashghal advised that the new diversion will not impact or affect the main access points into the Mall of Qatar.
As shown (on the map), road users travelling south on the TTR from Lusail and need to access the Mall of Qatar are advised to continue straight over the bridge over Dukhan Highway, turn left at the first roundabout and travel right on the service road towards Al Rufaa Street.
Road users will need to turn left at the roundabout to the south of Al Jahaniya Interchange and continue north and perform a U-turn at the roundabout on Al Rufaa Street before turning right into the Mall of Qatar.
There will be no reduction in the number of lanes as a result of this diversion, Ashghal added.Last updated: May 25 2017 08:51 PM
