A section of Al Waab St. that goes from Villaggio Mall toward Al Sadd will be completely closed to traffic for 12 hours starting Thursday, Qatar’s Public Work’s Authority Ashghal has said.
The closure will take effect from 11pm on Thursday until 11am Friday, to allow workers to do maintenance work on the traffic signal at the intersection of Al Bustan St. and Al Waab.
Motorists heading toward Al Sadd will be diverted onto Bu Erayyen St. Traffic heading in the opposite direction on Al Waab, toward Villaggio Mall, will not be affected.
According to the map, those traveling on Bu Erayyen St. and Al Bustan St. and heading toward Al Waab would also face diversions.
Al Bustan St., which becomes Bu Erayyen St. north of Al Waab St., is set to undergo extensive works later this year as part of a multi-billion riyal overhaul of local roads and expressways across the country.
Ashghal’s plans to remodel the road include creating a three-level interchange at its junction with Al Rayyan Road – a ground-level signalized junction, an underpass below it and another underpass below that (-2 level) for Bu Erayyen/Al Bustan Street.
The work, which is expected to affect the whole road, is due to start this year and be completed in the first half of 2019, Ashghal said in its annual report, which was published late last year.
Airport road diversion
Meanwhile, Ashghal has also announced the six-month closure of Dareen St. off of Airport Road to enable micro-tunneling works ahead of building a new pumping station.
Commuters will not be able to access Airport Road from Dareen St. starting June 6. The closure will last until the end of November.
Instead, they can can turn right onto Al Aasha St. and continue until Umm Al Maradem St. before turning left onto Airport road, Ashghal said.
The nightmare continues …
Heard the new road taking you the airport is pretty good… Why don’t you take it out of here …. Hehe to easy
Funny how you bash the foreigners but turn around and do the same. Common complaint amojng the entire population. Doha = One big construction zone.
You should leave already.
Funny how he bashes the foreigners but turns around and does the same? What does that even mean? Seriously drop the crack pipe dude…
A-Qtr doesn’t like to be criticized but then does it. It’s not rocket science to figure out.
I’m sure your wife can take up for herself.
My wife “can take up” for herself? Do we need to figure out all your sentences because you can’t drop the pipe? Or are you just daft?
Contrary I love being critized espically in a meaningful constructive manner.. And I wasn’t critizing anyone I was trolling a joke on how if you don’t like the roads then the road to the airport is Perfectly paved as in go back home… What I don’t like are Egyptians … Never got along with them…
From my time there I can say they feel the same way about Gulfies
To bad for them they need us more than we do them, we can survive without koshary and stuffed pigeons, but let’s see how far they go without Gulf aid…similar to the relationship with a lot of the replaceable disgruntled expats…
Deleting for attack and subsequent thread.
How I wish that there is a street party for that closure… Party… party …
