Orbital Road


Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will change traffic on northbound main carriageway of the Orbital Road onto a parallel route, running from the intersecting points of northern Orbital Road and Salwa Road to southern Orbital Road and Dukhan Road towards Lusail, with the detour starting on Sunday and lasting for 12 months.

The traffic shift will enable the construction of the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route, one of Ashghals Expressway Program projects.

During the detour, travelers heading for Lusail from Mesaieed and Salwa Road via the Orbital Road can use the next route for a distance of approximately 13.5 km, to stretch from Interchange 24 on Salwa Road to prior to Umm Al Juwashin Interchange.

The parallel road is made up of two lanes replacing the three-lane Orbital Road main carriageway, with no change for speed limit at 80 kph.
