Three roundabouts would be turned to signal-controlled intersections on Wadi Al Salmiya Street which connects Al Kharaityat Interchange with Al Rufaa Street in Al Kharaitiyat Area, according to an an Ashghal statemen.

It has said there will be two signalised junctions replacing two roundabouts, one to link Zikreet Street with Wadi Al Salmiya Street and another to connect Gharrafat Al Rayyan Street with Wadi Al Salmiya Street.

The third roundabout on Wadi Al Salmiya connecting Wadi Al Mashreb Street and Barqa Al Hamil Street will be changed into a T-Junction.

The new reconstruction will provide some expansions, increasing the number of lanes at the new intersections from two into three.

The fresh revamp will largely improve traffic leading to and from AlShamal Road, notably Al Kharaitiyat Interchange, Al Kharaitiyat Area

and local approaches such as Zikreet Street and Gharrafat Al Rayyan towards Al Rufaa Street and Dukhan Road. Also, the upgrade will

boost traffic to areas of Bani Hajer, Al Wajba and Al Rayyan besides the key close facilities, including Mall of Qatar and Celebration Complex.

To facilitate the works, a diversion will be in place on Wadi Al Salmiya Street on dual carriageways as the vehicle movement will be shifted

onto a 1500-metre long parallel route comprising three roundabouts and two lanes in each direction. The new layout will be in effect between March 16 (Friday) and Deptember 30.
