Ashghal has announced the commencement of the 9.2km long Al Wakrah Main Road upgrade works. The total cost is approximately QR600mn.
The project is part of Ashghal’s plan to complete works on the road networks in the southern area, following the recent openings of G-Ring Road, southern part of Doha Express Highway, Hamad Port Road and the Orbital Road, which is nearing completion.
The road works stretch from the Airport Interchange on G-Ring Road to Mesaieed Road and Waab Behair Intersection in the southern part of Doha Express Highway.
Works will include widening the road to three lanes to accommodate 6,000 vehicles per hour in each direction, providing free traffic flow and reducing travel time for vehicles coming from Doha to Wakrah and the southern areas.
The project includes constructing four new intersections and upgrading the existing roundabouts to signal-controlled intersections.
There will be a tunnel for free traffic flow in both directions.
The project also includes the construction of 6.1km bicycle and pedestrian paths from the airport interchange to the Ras Bufuntas train station.
The Wakrah road will also be integrated with the Qatar Rail Metro Station in line with developing an efficient transportation network that can improve traffic flow.Last updated: October 24 2018 12:35 AM
