With most of its parts so far opened, work on Mesaimeer Interchange will be completed in the third quarter of 2021, the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has said on its website.
Touted to be the first of its kind in Qatar, the three-level Mesaimeer Interchange will contain nine underpasses and two main bridges connecting Rawdat Al Khail Street and Industrial Area Road in both directions, in addition to connecting E-Ring Road with the southern part of Doha Expressway in one direction while achieving "great flow of traffic in all directions".
In July last year, Ashghal announced 92% completion of the works while opening a 7km road, linking Doha Expressway and Southern Doha Expressway at Mesaimeer Interchange in order to ensure free and direct traffic flow from Mesaieed, Al Wakra and Al Wukair towards Doha, 22 February Street and Al Shamal Road.
Also, Ashghal opened the lanes to Al Wakra along with the other lanes from Al Wakra with 4-6 lanes in each direction to allow some 20,000 vehicles per hour in both directions, saving around 70% of travel time.
Mesaimeer Interchange enables a direct link with the Al Janoub, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium and Al Thumama stadiums as it integrates with other major arteries, running from Umm Besher Interchange on G-Ring Road and Southern Doha Expressway, through Al Wetiyyat Interchange on Sabah Al Ahmad Corridor, onto Mesaimeer Interchange along with Doha Expressway, E-Ring Road, Industrial Area Road and Rawdat Al Khail Street.
It connects six main roads, namely Mesaimeer Interchange, Doha Expressway, southern part of Doha Expressway, Sabah Al Ahmed Corridor, Industrial Area Road and Rawdat Al Khail Street. The interchange also provides a vital traffic link between the south, central and north of the country. It links traffic from the south through the southern part of Doha Expressway, main carriageway of Doha Expressway and Al Shamal Road.
It also connects traffic between Industrial Area Road and the heart of Doha through a connection to Rawdat Al Khail Street, which intersects with D-Ring and C-Ring roads, and also between the busy areas of Nuaija, Al Thumama, Bu Hamour, Al Mamoura and Mesaimeer, providing easy access to Al Wakra, Al Wukair and the Industrial Area.
It is located in a vital area that has many facilities, including Al Thumama Stadium, one of the World Cup venues. The interchange has three pedestrian bridges that will help ease people’s access to the stadium.
The interchange also serves many important educational, health and commercial facilities such as the Medical Commission, Qatar Meteorological Department, many schools, health centres and nearby shopping malls.
It integrates with Sabah Al Ahmad Corridor through its connection to Al Wetiyyat Interchange, which is a strategic link between the southern part of Doha Expressway with Doha’s main highway, to provide free-flowing traffic between the north of Doha and its south.
