The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will close the Northern Service Road heading to Simsima on Umm Birka Interchange on Tuesday, 30 January, 2018 for a period of 60 days, in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.

During the closure period, traffic heading to Simsima and North Road via the Northern Service Road on Umm Birka Interchange will be diverted to a parallel diversion road, as shown on the attached map. The traffic change is required to enable the works of laying Sewer rising mains as part of design, build, operate and maintain of Al Thakhira Sewage Treatment Works, Transfer Pumping Station and Associated Pipelines. The Public Works Authority requests that all road users abide by the speed limit and follow diversion road signs installed by Ashghal to ensure their safety. With the camping season now underway, Ashghal also reminds road users to exercise special care while driving to their campsite, by further reducing speed as necessary.
