The Al Rayyan Road Upgrade Project is 88% over and is set to be completed in the first quarter of the year, the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) announced yesterday following the opening of Qatar’s longest and deepest bidirectional tunnel.
In a statement, Ashghal said the Al Rayyan Road Upgrade Project Phase 2 is “a critical” inner city project that will enhance 5.5km of Al Rayyan Road and Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street to the west of Olympic Intersection.
Aside from increasing the lane capacity of the main carriageway to four lanes in each direction, the project will deliver four main interchanges and upgrade of a flyover, including the tunnel.
The project will also provide upgraded service roads to benefit businesses and residential areas, as well as dedicated pedestrian and cycle paths. Ashghal noted that the project scope includes the upgrade of utility infrastructure, such as treated sewage effluent lines, storm water drainage network, potable water line, and foul water networks, as well as landscaping and beautification works.
On key benefits to residential areas, Ashghal said the project caters to several residential areas throughout the entire stretch from Doha to Bani Hajer, including Al Rayyan, Muraykh, Lebday, Luaib, Al Waab, Al Messila, Al Luqta, and Al Hetmi Al Jadeed.
Travelling on Al Rayyan Road Upgrade Project Phase Two will provide improved access to Al Furousiya Equestrian Complex and Al Shaqab Horse Racing Academy, offering further benefits to those availing sports facilities in the area.
Ashghal said the project serves a number of key business districts, such as Al Shafi Street commercial area in New Al Rayyan, and creating easy access to Jarir Bookstore, Family Food Centre, and Al Rawabi Food Centre.
The project will provide easy access to leisure facilities like Al Rayyan Park, educational institutions, such as Qatar Foundation and Education City, as well as good connectivity to three local metro stations: Al Messila Station, Al Rayyan Al Qadeem Station, and Al Shaqab Station.
Ashghal said project deliverables include Khalid bin Abdullah Al Attiyah Interchange along Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street and Al Furousiya Street, a three-level interchange, which includes one underpass, one signalised junction, and one bridge. It provides connectivity towards Bani Hajer, Doha, Aspire Zone, and Al Gharafa.
The Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Thani Interchange along Old Al Rayyan Street and Huwar Street, on the other hand, is a two-level interchange, which includes one underpass and one signalised junction, and provides connectivity towards Education City, Old Al Rayyan, Aspire Zone, and Al Gharafa.
Similarly, the Al Mokafaha Interchange along Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street and Al Bustan Street is a three-level interchange, which includes one tunnel, one underpass, and one signalised junction, and provides connectivity towards Bani Hajer, Doha, Al Bustan, Al Waab, and Al Luqta.
Lebday Interchange located at Old Al Rayyan Street and Al Bustan Street is a two-level interchange, which includes one tunnel and one signalised junction, and provides connectivity towards Old Al Rayyan, Education City, Al Waab, and Al Luqta, Ashghal said.
The Al Rayyan Flyover, which connects Al Rayyan Road and 22nd February Road, is a flyover constructed within an existing four level Al Rayyan Interchange and provides connectivity towards New Al Rayyan and Bani Hajer.
Also, the Al Messila Underpass, which connects Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Road and Jasim bin Hamad Street, provides connectivity towards Madinat Khalifa, Bani Hajer, and Doha, Ashghal said.
