The truck parking roads are considered a vital part of Phase 1 of Ashghal’s Roads and Infrastructure Development Project in Al Shamal, implemented by Ashghal.
Ali Ashkanani, head of the North Areas Section at Ashghal's Roads Projects Department, said the authority completed the construction of four dual carriageway roads with a total length of 2.2km, which would provide truck drivers with easy access from the truck parking area in Al Shamal city to Al Shamal Road, leading to Doha city and other parts of the country, and vice-versa.

Ashkanani noted that the four roads include two lanes in each direction separated by a median, in addition to three roundabouts that will regulate the movement of trucks. The roads are also provided with street lighting, traffic signs and road marking in order to enhance traffic safety in the area.
He added that these roads were constructed in accordance with the highest standards and specifications, and were designed to withstand large truck loads.
Phase 1 of the Roads and Infrastructure Development Project in Al Shamal includes a wide range of rehabilitation works for the existing local roads to transform them into developed roads that will help meet the needs of the growing population in Al Shamal, Ashghal said in a statement.
The project also includes building developed roads and a new sewage network needed in the area to serve about 3,600 commercial and residential buildings.
