The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced that Al Markhiya Tunnel on Umm Lekhba Interchange (Landmark) in both directions will be opened Thursday evening in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.
Umm Lekhba Interchange, the longest interchange in Qatar, once completed will significantly improve traffic and shorten journey time by more than 70%. The bridges have nine arteries that provide a free traffic flow in nine directions in addition to the free traffic on Al Shamal road as well as the underpass of the old interchange linking Al Markhiya Street and Sabah Al Ahmad Corridor.
Umm Lekhba Interchange consists of four levels and nine bridges that provide free traffic flow in all directions. It can accommodate more than 20,000 vehicles per hour. Five bridges consist of two lanes in one direction while the other four bridges include one lane in one direction. The interchange is the second-highest interchange in Qatar after the interchange of Umm Bishr on the G-Ring R.
