The Committee for Corniche Street closure implementation plan has announced that fines will be imposed on unauthorised vehicles using the dedicated public bus lane on A-Ring Road starting from October 2.
The committee noted in a statement that the lane is designated for the use of public buses, taxis and authorised vehicles only. The relevant authorities will issue fines – based on Article 49 – for all unauthorised vehicles that use the lane beyond the stipulated period, it added.
Such vehicles are allowed to use the lane from 2am to 8am only. A-Ring Road extends from Ras Bu Abboud bridge to the Al Diwan Intersection with Al Rayyan Road.
The designation of the lane for public buses, taxis and authorised vehicles was announced in July as one of the measures designed by the committee to provide smooth transport experiences for fans during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
A-Ring Road is considered one of Doha’s most vital roads, as it links a variety of commercial and residential areas and service facilities, as well as many tourist destinations.
