Diversion of Part of Dukhan Road on Lebsayyer Interchange

The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will close part of Dukhan Road in both directions, for a distance of around 1.5 km at Lebsayyer Interchange. The lanes leading from Doha to Dukhan will be closed starting from Friday 27 April 2018, while the lanes leading from Dukhan to Doha will be closed starting from Friday 11 May 2018. The closure on both directions will last for a period of six months,in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.

During this period, traffic heading to Lebsayyer Interchange on Dukhan Road can use the interchange exits, which include 2 lanes in each direction, to reach the roundabouts (adjacent to the interchange) and then to Lebsayyer area, Rawdat Rashid Road, or back to Dukhan Road, as shown in the below map. The closure aims to enable construction works of a new bridge at Lebsayyer Interchange, as part of Rawdat Rashid Road Development Project implemented by Ashghal. The project aims to provide a developed and safe road to link Salwa Road with Dukhan Road, and keep the traffic movement away from Rawdat Rashid residential area. The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
