The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, will embark on a second traffic change on Mesaimeer Intersection (Leabidly Roundabout) on E-Ring Road where it will shut the junction roundabout and install a light signal to provide an alternatively seamless traffic leading to Rawdat Al Khail Street, E-Ring Road, Industrial Area Road and Doha Expressway. Ashghal notes that the first Leabidly Roundabout diversion announced by Ashghal on 10 January, 2018 is still effective.

The detour, designed in collaboration with the General Directorate of Traffic, commences on Saturday, 27 January, 2018, and continues for a period of two years to enable the reconstruction of Leabidly Roundabout into a multi-level junction. Also, the Leabidly Roundabout Bridge will remain shut to traffic coming from E-Ring Road towards Industrial Area.

During the diversion, motorists travelling from Rawdat Al Khail Street towards Industrial Area can use the new light signal and turn left towards E-Ring Road and turn right at the next light signal onto the newly built route towards Industrial Area Road. Motorists travelling from Rawdat Al Khail Street towards Industrial Area can turn right at the new light signal towards the next light signal then perform a U-turn onto the new route towards the Industrial Area Road, as illustrated on the attached map. Doha- bound traffic from Industrial Area will be detoured right prior to Leabidly Roundabout to a newly built road towards E-Ring Road, and turned left at the next new light signal to join Rawdat Al Khail Street and Doha Expressway. 

Road users travelling from Doha Expressway towards Industrial Area, E-Ring Road or Rawdat Al Khail Street can take right prior to Leabidly Roundabout onto the recently built road towards Industrial Area Road, and turn left at the next new light signal to join E-Ring Road. Commuters travelling from E-Ring Road towards Industrial Area ought to take left at the light signal before Leabidly Roundabout onto the new route towards Industrial Area Road. Commuters travelling from E-Ring Road ought to drive through the light signal before Leabidly Roundabout and take right onto Rawdat Al Khail Street or continue straight towards Doha Expressway.

Ashghal will install road signs providing motorists with advance notice of the new road layout. The Public Works Authority requests all road users to abide by the new speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
