The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced it will restrict access from Wukair Link Road to G-Ring Road from Wednesday in order to open the southbound lanes on the new 11km Doha Express Highway.
The permanent road change, which is located at the intersection of Wukair Link Road and G-Ring Road, has been designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.
The access change will be implemented at the same time as the opening of the southbound lanes on Doha Express Highway and is necessary to minimise the risk of vehicle collisions, the authority has said in a press statement.
The Doha Express Highway is a key component of Ashghal’s external expressway network, and is expected to provide significant relief for residents of Al Wakrah and Wukair by providing an “efficient alternative” to Al Wakrah Road.
As shown on the attached map, Ashghal will close the existing access point between Wukair Link Road and G-Ring Road, preventing access in both directions. Road users in the Wukair area will have two available alternatives on brand-new highways to reach key destinations across Doha.
Wukair residents heading towards the Corniche are advised to head to the roundabout on Al Wukair Street and take the relevant exit towards Al Wakrah.
Motorists should continue straight towards the roundabout near Al Wakra Hospital, perform a U-turn and drive for approximately 1.5km before turning right onto the northbound lanes of the Doha Express Highway.
Road users should follow the Doha Express Highway straight towards G-Ring Road before turning right and heading towards Doha.
Wukair residents heading towards western Doha (Industrial Area/Salwa Road) are advised to head towards the roundabout on Al Wukair Street and go west towards Hamad Port Road.
At the roundabout that connects Al Wukair Street and Hamad Port Road, motorists should take the first exit and turn right towards the Industrial Area and East Industrial Street.
Ashghal has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit, which remains at 50kph on local roads in Wukair, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.
