The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will implement a temporary road closure on part of Al Beday Street between Bin Zaben Intersection and Al Lebdaya Roundabout. The proposed road change is required to complete the utility works and the construction of two underpasses at Bin Zaben Intersection as part of phase two of the Al Rayyan Road Upgrade project.

The diversion, which has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, will be implemented on 14 July 2017 and will last for a brief period of three months. To accommodate road users travelling in this area, ‘Ashghal’ has constructed a temporary road 200 metres to the east of Al Beday Street. It will consist of two lanes in each direction, and it will be connected with Al Rayyan Al Qadeem Street by a new traffic signal junction which has been constructed to the east of Al Lebdaya Roundabout.

Road users who usually use Al Beday Street to travel between Bin Zaben Intersection and Al Lebdaya Roundabout will be required to use the new temporary road and then use the new traffic signal junction at Al Rayyan Al Qadeem Street or Bin Zaben Intersection to continue on their journey. The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. ‘Ashghal’ requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, which has been reduced to 50 kph to ensure the safety of road users and project workers, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
