The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced that Al Khaleej Street’s northbound lanes from Wadi Musheireb Intersection (known as known as Al Jaidah Bridge Roundabout) to Al Khaleej Intersection will be closed for four months.
During the period, access from Al Mannai Roundabout to Al Khaleej Street will be also banned. A new signal has been installed at the intersection of Ibn Mahmoud Street with Al Rayyan Road.
The closure is aimed at allowing the installation of a bridge deck at Al Mannai Roundabout and increasing the number of lanes in Al Khaleej Street from two to three lanes in both directions as part of the Interim Improvement of the B Ring Road, Al Mannai and Guest Palace Roundabouts Scheme project.
Traffic from the White Palace Intersection towards Al Mannai Roundabout can use Ibn Mahmoud Street to reach Al Jaidah Bridge Roundabout. Traffic coming from Al Diwan Intersection towards Al Mannai Roundabout can turn right towards Qasr Al Marmar Roundabout and take a U-turn towards Al Mannai underpass leading to Al Jaidah Bridge Roundabout.
Traffic heading from Al Kahrabaa Intersection to Al Mannai Roundabout will have to use Al Diwan Street and than turn left at Al Diwan Intersection. Those coming from the B Ring Road or Ibn Seena Street towards Al Jaidah Bridge Roundabout can use Bin Mahmoud Street to reach Al Mannai Bridge as shown on the map.
During the period, a partial closure will be implemented at the intersection known as ‘The Center Intersection” on Salwa Road where the main lanes will be kept open between Ramada Intersection and Al Jaidah Bridge Roundabout. Those coming from Al Kandi Street can only turn right into Salwa Road as shown on the map.
Ashghal has installed road signs advising motorists of the closure and has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow the road signs to ensure safety.
