The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, opened, Sunday, 17/12/2017, Al Rayyan Interchange flyover, as part of Al Rayyan Road Upgrade project - Phase II.

Senior officials were present in the inauguration of the new flyover, including Ashghal’s Assistant President Eng. Abdullah Hamad Al Attiyyah, Expressway Department Manager Eng. Yousef Al Emadi, Traffic Engineering and Safety Brigadier Mohammed Maarifiya, along with a number of Ashghal’s project engineers. The new bridge is one kilometer long with two lanes in one direction, connecting traffic from Al Amir Street and Doha Expressway with New Al Rayyan Road. The key overpass provides an alternative direct route from areas of Al Sadd and Al Waab to New Al Rayyan Road towards areas of Al Rayyan, Bani Hajer and Dukhan, sparing Al Rayyan Roundabout and the diversions in Old Al Rayyan.

On this occasion, Expressway Department Manager Eng. Yousef Al Emadi said that Al Rayyan Interchange flyover was part of the construction of Al Rayyan Road Upgrade project - Phase II; it was built to cross traffic over 22 February Road to alleviate traffic pressure on the Al Rayyan Interchange roundabout and allow travellers coming from Central Doha via Doha Expressssway and areas of Al Sadd and Al Waab towards Al Rayyan, Bani Hajer and Dukhan to use the bridge to New Al Rayyan Road, and eventually,  reducing travel time.

Ashghal’ had opened in the last few days of key parts of the expressway network, through a number of projects including Lusail Expressway, Khalifa Avenue, and   Al Rayyan Road Upgrade – Phase II. As the implementation pace of expressway projects has been accelerated, the main and new parts opened in conjunction with National Day celebrations, before the end of 2017. It is worth mentioning that the Public Works Authority has achieved many progresses on the whole expressway and infrastructure projects in 2017 thanks to its acceleration of the construction by the advent of 2017. Despite the challenging status quo, Ashghal could accomplish huge and vital parts of expressway projects, featuring approximately 400 kilometers of the expressway programme.
