The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar has announced the commencement of works for installing 1440 palm-frond designed light poles to decorate Corniche Road. These works are expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2022.
Chairman of The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar Eng. Mohammad Arqoub Al Khaldi said that the installation works of the light poles have commenced. The light poles are manufactured locally, using local raw materials. The design itself is inspired from palm fronds, which reflect the Qatari identity, thereby decorating the road with the beautiful shape of the palm fronds. This turns the light poles into artwork, which adds an exceptional appearance to Doha's beachfront.
About the execution of the works, Acting Head of External Highways Eng. Hasan Al Ghanim stated that the light poles utilize LED bulbs to point out the beauty of their design during nighttime. Further, the light poles will be installed along a distance reaching 10KM on the Corniche road, as they will be distributed in the middle and on the side of the roads stretching from Ras Abou Aboud flyover, until the light signals adjacent to the Convention halls close to the Sheraton.
The committee works in coordination with several ministries and other entities of the State for the construction of central public parks, provision of dedicated lanes for pedestrians and bicycles, development of the Doha Corniche, development of Central Doha, and increasing trees and green areas.
