The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, announces a temporary traffic diversion of the southeast ramp at Umm Al Afaei Interchange on the Orbital Road that will be implemented for a period of one month starting on Tuesday, 25 December 2018, in order to carryout excavation and maintenance works of water pipes by Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa).

During the period of the closure, that has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, road users coming from Salwa Road and heading towards Doha, can continue straight until reaching Umm Al Juwashin Interchange, and take the southeast free right exit towards Doha, as shown in the attached map. All road users heading to Umm Al Afaei petrol station, should remain on the main carriageway, follow the same route and use the first exit loop at Umm Al Juwashin Interchange, in order to access the petrol station.

The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic change and request all road users to abide by the speed limit which remains at 80 kph along the route, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
