The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, announces the temporary closure of Al Waab signal-controlled intersection in all directions on the main carriageway. Free flow right turn lanes will remain operational.

The closure is required to facilitate completion of a temporary signal-controlled roundabout. It has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic and will be implemented for 12 hours (12am – 12pm) on Thursday 21 February 2019. During this period, road users travelling through or turning left at Al Waab Street from any direction can utilise the free flow right turns and perform a U-turn at the next available junction. The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic shift and requests all road users to abide by the 50kph speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
