The development works of the B- Ring Road will be completed by the end of the year while implementing a slew of development works in the Musheirib area, according to the official website of the Public Works Authority (Ashghal).
Ashghal is currently working on the project where B-Ring Road and Al Khaleej Street are developed with a total length of 10km. This is while enhancing the streets' capacity by increasing the number of lanes on each of them from two to three in each direction.
Al Khaleej Street that records heavy traffic flow is developed in order to ensure better traffic flow. The street serves dense residential areas and connects directly to several major roads such as Salwa Road, B Ring Road and Onaiza Street. In addition, works to build a bicycle path of 1.2 km and pedestrian paths of 18.2 km and two pedestrian bridges on Al Khaleej Street are underway.
Onaiza Street along with parts of the streets perpendicular to the B-Ring Road such as Al Matar, Wadi Musheireb, Rawdat Al Khail and Al Rayyan are also developed. Entrance to Rumailah Hospital is developed while traffic safety is enhanced by providing street lighting, pedestrian and cycle lanes along with pedestrian crossings. The number of parking bays is increased while landscaping works are carried out. Infrastructure work such as installing a stormwater drainage system and the drainage network is carried out along with developing the existing potable water distribution system.
B-Ring Road assumes importance as it connects a number of service facilities such as Rumailah Hospital, in addition to touristic destinations such as the National Museum of Qatar, Museum of Islamic Art, Souq Waqif, Al Bidda Park as well as commercial establishments. The project area covers several Doha Metro stations and the works facilitate transportation between a number of vital destinations in the centre of Doha and the rest of the country.
Ashghal said it has adopted measures to limit the impact of construction works on commuters and reduce traffic jams within the project area.
