The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will close and divert an 800 metre section of Al Furousiya Street from Saturday to enable the construction of a free-flowing, three-level interchange on Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street.
Ashghal said in a statement that the proposed diversion has been designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic and will be implemented in two phases.
The first phase will commence from Saturday and will be in place for nearly two months.
During the period, motorists travelling eastbound on Al Furousiya Street and wishing to access Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street will be diverted onto Khalifa Bin Ahmad Street and are required to follow the diversion along Umm Jawlaq Street and Street 950 (as shown on the map).
Ashghal has advised it will not reduce the number of lanes on the said section of Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street as part of the diversion, but it will gradually reduce the number of lanes on Al Furousiya Street from three to two upon approach to Khalifa Bin Ahmad Street.
The authority has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit, which has been reduced to 30 kph in some areas, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.
