As part of a series of projects implemented by Ashghal to improve the roads network across the country, the authorities have started development works on Tihama Street and Al Mansour Street in the Old Airport (Area 45).
Head of Doha City section at the Roads Projects Department at Ashghal, Engineer Mohamed Arqoub al-Khaldi said the works included developing the area’s infrastructure, such as developing the main drainage networks and connecting homes to this network, constructing permanent storm water and groundwater networks, constructing a wastewater treatment network, and protecting the underground utility lines for Ooredoo and Kahramaa.

Works also include providing pedestrian paths and new parking bays as well as constructing an additional roundabout on Al Mansour Street to enhance the traffic flow.
In order to implement the development works, Ashghal will close parts of Tihama and Al Mansour streets in both directions.
The closure will be implemented in two phases to reduce traffic disruption.
Phase 1 starts on Friday and lasts until October 1, followed by Phase 2 which will last until end of this year (as shown in the attached map).
Traffic will be diverted to nearby local roads, while access to houses and surrounding streets will be provided during this period.
Ashghal has completed over the past two years the development of a number of streets in the Old Airport area, converting them to permanent streets, including Al-Hurriya, Al-Ameen, Al-Salah, Al-Tabarani, Al-Karama, Al-Hussain bin Ali streets, and parts of Al-Mansour Street.
Ashghal will install road signs advising motorists of the closure.
