The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced that the southbound lane of Jassim bin Hamad Street which is 350m in length will be temporarily reopened, connecting the street with the westbound lane of Al Rayyan Road as shown in the attached map. The street will reopen as of Wednesday 14th October 2015. The reopening of the street will cut journey times allowing commuters to directly access Al Rayyan Road through the Jassim bin Hamad Street instead of having to drive on Al Rashid Street and onto Al Yamama Street.

This temporary opening aims to ease traffic congestion in the area and reduce the impact of construction work on the residential and commercial areas surrounding Al Rayyan Road Project, Contract 2.  The lane will remain open throughout the implementation period of Al Maseelah Intersection, which is an important part of the project. 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.
