The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced a road closure on a section of the Al Shamal Road between Duhail and Al Gharrafa Interchanges in both directions (including the service roads) for two months from Friday between midnight and 5am.
The closure is to allow the construction of Umm Lekhba Interchange bridges which are part of Sabah Al Ahmad Corridor. During the diversion that is designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, road users will be able to use the alternative routes as shown on the attached map.
Road users on Al Shamal Road heading southbound towards Doha will have to use the exit at Duhail Interchange towards Al Gharrafa Street, drive to the Tilted Junction and turn left onto Al Luqta Street to reach Al Gharrafa Interchange from where they can exit southbound towards Doha.
Road users on Al Shamal Road heading northbound towards Al Shamal have been told to take the right exit at Al Gharrafa Interchange towards Khalifa Street, turn left onto Arab League Street, then continue straight to the intersection with Al Khafji Street, take a left onto Al Khafji Street and finally turn right onto Al Shamal Road at Duhail Interchange.
Ashghal will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic shift and requests all road users to abide by the 50kph speed limit and follow road signs to ensure their safety.
