The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, will close and divert an 800 metre section of Al Furousiya Street to enable the construction of a free flowing, three-level interchange on Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street. The proposed diversion has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic and will be implemented in two phases. The first phase will commence from 22 July 2017 and will be in place for two (2) months.

During this time, road users travelling eastbound on Al Furousiya Street wishing to access Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street, will be diverted onto Khalifa Bin Ahmad Street and be required to follow the diversion route along Umm Jawlaq Street and Street 950 as shown on the attached map. Ashghal advises that it will not reduce the number of lanes on this section of Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street as part of this diversion, but it will gradually reduce the number of lanes on Al Furousiya Street from three lanes to two lanes upon approach to Khalifa Bin Ahmad Street. The Public Works Authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, which has been reduced to 30 kph in some areas, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.
