A temporary traffic diversion at the southeast ramp near Umm Al Afaei Interchange on the Orbital Road will be implemented for a month from Tuesday.
The diversion is to facilitate the Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) to carryout excavation and maintenance works of the water pipes in the area.
During the closure, which is put in place in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, road users coming from Salwa Road and heading towards Doha can continue straight until reaching Umm Al Juwashin Interchange, and take the southeast free right exit towards Doha (as shown on the map).
All road users heading to Umm Al Afaei petrol station, should remain on the main carriageway, follow the same route and use the first exit loop at Umm Al Juwashin Interchange in order to access the petrol station.
Ashghal will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic change and requested all road users to abide by the speed limit which remains at 80 kph along the route and follow the road signs to ensure safety.
