The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has completed 5.3km of roads linking Workers Accommodation Community in Umm Ghuwailina, according to an official tweet.
The road provides safe and separate access to the area allocated for temporary workers’ quarantine facilities. The initiative comes within efforts to ensure a safe and healthy living environment for workers’ communities.
Ashghal has so far completed the roads and infrastructure works for the 31,000-person capacity Integrated Workers Complex (IWAC) in West Umm Slal (Bu Garn).
Ashghal also announced opening of the roads in the area to traffic. The project serves the needs of the workers’ accommodation and the logistics city in the area and connects them with the existing road network. It was set up as part of the Authority’s efforts to serve the workers accommodation facilities and to ensure a safe, healthy living environment in their communities.
Ashghal accelerated the work in conjunction with the allocation of one of the accommodation facilities to serve as a temporary quarantine facility for around 4,000 workers. Ashghal also expedited the commissioning of the drainage network in order to discharge the sewage flows from this area to the existing plant in Doha North, about 10km from the project area.
