The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced a traffic diversion on part of Hazm Al Themaid Street located in the Al Foroush area.
Traffic will be diverted to a newly constructed parallel street starting Tuesday for a period of six months, Ashghal has said in a statement.
The diversion will be implemented in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.
Motorists coming from the Al Kharaitiyat area can use the alternative road, which has one lane in each direction, heading towards the open part of Hazm Al Themaid Street or to Al Rufaa Street (known as Celebration Road).
Those coming from the Al Themaid area can use the alternative road to reach the Al Kharaitiyat area, the statement explains.
The alternative road includes two roundabouts to facilitate local access to the existing petrol station and schools in the area, as shown on the attached map.
This diversion will be carried out to facilitate the upgrade of Hazm Al Themaid Street to serve new residential areas in Al Foroush and Kharaitiyat by providing connectivity to Al Rufaa Street for residents in the future, as part of the roads and infrastructure project in Al Foroush and Kharaitiyat, the statement adds.
Ashghal will instal road signs to advise motorists of the diversion. It has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure everyone's safety.
