The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’ announced that it will temporarily closure eastbound access to Al Rayyan Road from Al Rayyan Roundabout and Al Amir Street towards Olympic Roundabout.

The proposed road closure has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic. It will commence on Tuesday 01 August 2017, and will be in place until Friday 04 August 2017. As shown on the attached map, road users travelling eastbound towards Olympic Roundabout are advised to exit Al Rayyan Roundabout on to Al Rayyan Al Ateek Street, continue straight and take the second exit on Al Lebdaya Roundabout and continue onwards. At the traffic signals turn left onto Al Rayyan Road, continue straight, and use Al Rayyan Bridge towards Olympic Roundabout.

These closures, together with the temporary closure of Al Rayyan Flyover implemented last week, are required to enable road upgrade works on a section of Al Rayyan Road and the opening of an underpass that will connect to Jasim Bin Hamad Street to Al Rayyan Road as part of Ashghal’s Al Rayyan Road Upgrade Phase Two project. ‘Ashghal’ advises road users to abide by the reduced speed limit of 50kph along Al Rayyan Al Ateek Street, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.
