Traffic diversion until Feb 2022

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced that the number of lanes available on Al Sailiya Road will be reduced to two lanes in each direction instead of three, from 50m before the Muaither Sports Club Roundabout to 50m after the Plastic Roundabout.


This will be done to facilitate the implementation of roadworks for the upgrade of Muaither Sports Club and Plastic roundabouts on Al Sailiya Road as part of the Road Improvement Works for Junctions and Roundabouts in Various Areas of Greater Doha (Phase 9).
This diversion will be implemented, in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, until February 2022, Ashghal has said.
The authority will instal road signs advising motorists of the closure. It has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.

Mooza al-Sowaidi, head of the Doha City Section in the Roads Projects Department at Ashghal, said: "The development of the roundabouts known as Muaither Sports Club Roundabout and Plastic Roundabout on Al Sailiya Road, and converting them into signal-controlled intersections, will regulate local traffic and improve traffic flow in the area. These works are part of Ashghal's efforts to improve the existing service utilities and upgrade the road network in Doha city in order to respond to the national economic development and social growth requirements in Qatar.”
Al-Sowaidi emphasised the importance of the project as both roundabouts are located on Al Sailiya Road, which is directly connected to Al Waab Street and West Industrial Street. These two roundabouts also serve many sports facilities and health institutions such as Muaither Sports Club and Muaither Health Centre. Besides, they facilitate access to many commercial centres and educational institutions.
Further to upgrading the two roundabouts and converting them to signallised intersections, the project will include other road developments at both new intersections with a total length of 6km, and the construction of new service roads. The scope of works will also include providing pedestrian footpaths of around 12km in length, cycle paths at approximately the same length (12km), landscaping works and upgrading street lighting systems. Further, the project will improve infrastructure utilities, such as the treated sewage effluent network and surface water drainage network, and will provide protection for the existing electricity and telecommunications cables.
The project will be implemented by JH Construction Company under the supervision of Gulf Engineering and Industrial Consultancy, and is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2022.
