Shamal Road diversion

The signal at Wadi Al Salamiya St. and Al Kharaitiyat St. on Al Shamal Road will be closed for the next year starting tomorrow (Jan. 8), Ashghal has announced.

The closure is required to carry out construction of a bridge that is part of the North Road enhancement project.

During the year, traffic will be diverted to a two-lane roundabout as shown in the map and the speed limit will be reduced to 30km/hour.

The North Road Enhancement Expressway Program entails the construction of service roads along Al Shamal from the northern part of Doha at Al Duhail Interchange, to the town of Al Shamal.

The overall project was originally slated for completion at the end of 2013, but appears to be behind schedule.
