Ashghal has also opened important sections of Khalifa Avenue Project such as significant sections of the three-level Bani Hajer Interchange. The interchange that replaced the previous roundabout accommodates approximately 1,500 vehicles per hour and provides smooth traffic flow.

Upon completion, the interchange will boast a unique 300m long multipurpose bridge which is the first-of-its-kind in Qatar along with cycle and pedestrian lanes.
Upon completion, the project will deliver approximately 11.6km of dual carriageway with four lanes in each direction. This is in addition to seven major interchanges, service roads along sections of the road and cycle, pedestrian and camel paths that will be set up on the south side of Al Luqta Street.
