The diversion on West Industrial Street

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will be diverting traffic on West Industrial Street between Street 15 and Street 33 starting Friday.

The Industrial area road works are expected to continue for six months.

Ashghal said traffic will be diverted to a new parallel road with two lanes in each direction and a roundabout at Street 23.

It explained the reason for the road works:

“The diversion aims to enable construction works to upgrade Doha’s Industrial Area Package 1, which aims to increase the capacity of roads, in addition to providing the Industrial Area with a full integrated infrastructure.”

The Public Works Authority built 4.5km of new road in the residential area between Legtaifiya Street and University Street.

It also upgraded lighting, added pedestrian crossing facilities, and integrated an advanced drainage network in the block, Ashghal said.

Starting tonight, several streets in Qatar’s Industrial Area will be closed for an entire year as Ashghal works to increase capacity on the roads and improve the area.

In a statement, the public works authority said that streets 658, 656, 654 and 660 will be shut. Motorists instead can use the one lane that’s open on Street 653 heading toward West Industrial St.

Additionally, streets 655, 657 and 659 will be open to traffic in both directions and will provide access to residential buildings and businesses in the area.

Commuters are asked to follow posted speed limit signs and other traffic directions for safety purposes.
