The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ will divert the traffic on the exit ramp and lanes Southeast of Umm Lekhba Interchange (in the direction from Doha to Al Markhiya Street) starting from Saturday 17 March 2018 in collaboration with the General Directorate of Traffic.

During the closure road users of Al Shamal Road in the direction from Doha Umm Lakhba Interchange are requested to follow the directions to the alternative routes in Madinat Khalifa North, which will lead them to Al Markhiya Street  through Al Ruwais Street and Dahl Al Hamam Street (as shown on the attached map).

A new traffic light signal will be placed at the intersection of Dahl Al Hamam Street with AlMarkhiya Street. Road users wishing to continue on Al Markhiya Street can turn right from the traffic light signal, or turn left to reach Al Hana Street. This traffic diversion is required to enable the construction works of the multiple bridges on Um Lekhba Interchange. The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the detour. Ashghal requests all road users abide by the speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
