The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will implement a traffic diversion on a 4-km section of the Temporary Truck Route in both directions. This section is located in Al-Mazrouah Area, 2 km west of Al Mazourah Interchange heading towards Salwa Road. The diversion will start on Wednesday, 21 February 2018, and will be in place for a period of two months, in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.

During this period, traffic on the closed section of the Temporary Truck Route will be diverted to two parallel lanes on the New Orbital Highway in both directions, as shown in the attached map. Access to Umm Slal Market will remain open for traffic, while the access to Al-Mazrouah Market and the surrounding area will be provided from the New Orbital Highway via a new roundabout to the south of Umm Slal Market. The diversion aims to allow construction works at Jery Al Samur Interchange as part of the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route project.

The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the diversion. Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
