Ashghal will effect a temporary diversion for four days from Thursday on Salwa Road eastbound carriageway between Rawdat Rashed Interchange (Exit 29) and Mesaieed Interchange (Exit 24) for a distance of 2.2km to allow the installation of gantries at Mesaieed Interchange.

The proposed diversion, designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, will remain in place until Sunday (November 25).

As shown on the map, the traffic heading eastbound on Salwa Road towards Doha will be diverted to the westbound carriageway after Rawdat Rashed Interchange and will return to normal flow before reaching Mesaieed Interchange.

During the diversion, the number of lanes will be reduced from four lanes to two lanes in order to accommodate traffic movement in both directions.

During the traffic change, the right turn exit at Mesaieed Interchange will be temporarily closed and road users heading from Bu Samra towards Mesaieed will follow the signs and use the three loops to exit Mesaieed Interchange towards Mesaieed.

The temporary realignment of Salwa Road will prevent traffic access from Salwa Service Road to Salwa Road. Road users will be directed to Rawdat Rashed Interchange through which they can get onto Salwa Road.

Ashghal will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. The authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limit (maximum of 80kph) for this section of Salwa Road, and follow the road signs to ensure safety.
