The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will implement a temporary closure that stretches for 2 km starting west of Al Rayyan Sports Club, on part of the west-bound lane of Dukhan Highway leading from Doha to Dukhan City, as shown in the attached map. The closure will start on the early morning of Tuesday 19 January 2016, and will last six months.

Traffic on the closed section of Dukhan Highway will be diverted to the opposite side of the road (east-bound lane) leading to Doha city, which was divided to contain both directions (to and from Doha city), with two lanes in each direction. The diversion will not have a big impact on traffic as it was already in place and has only been extended in length. The diversion is required to allow for the construction of the bridges which intersect with Dukhan Highway on the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route, Project, contract two.

Ashghal will install road signs to advice motorists of the diversion. The authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limits, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
