The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’ will implement a 12-hour traffic diversion on part of Lusail Street, to complete finishing works ahead of opening the main tunnel of Onaiza Interchange, part of its Lusail Expressway project.

The diversion will be placed on part of Lusail Street, in front of St. Regis Hotel until Katara signalised junction. The diversion will last for 12 hours from 11 pm on Friday 31 March 2017 until 11 am on Saturday 1 April 2017. During this period, traffic in both directions between the Old Exhibition Centre signalised junction and Katara signalised junction, will be closed.

Road users travelling from West Bay towards The Pearl and Lusail will be required to turn left to University Street (also known as Al Jamiaa Street) at the signal-controlled junction and follow the diversion route. Those travelling in the opposite direction, will be required to turn right onto West Bay Lagoon Street at the Katara signalised junction and follow the diversion route as shown on the attached map. The Public Works Authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.
