A temporary traffic diversion will be in place on Al Mazrooah Interchange on the North Road to continue the construction of a multi-level junction as part of the work of the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route.

The diversion, designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, starts Thursday midnight and will last until 4am on Sunday (December 10).

During the minor detour, the traffic on the bridge will be shifted onto a parallel route for a distance of 1.8km long, which incorporates just one lane in each direction in place of two lanes.

The northeast exit ramp and northwest entry ramp at Al Mazrooah Interchange connecting traffic from and to the Temporary Truck Route (TTR) and Al Shamal Road will be closed, providing direct exits from the two nearby eastern and western roundabouts alike (as shown on the map).

The speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/hour while the speed limit on Al Shamal Road main carriageway remains at 80 km/ hour.

Ashghal will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the new speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
