Atiq pointed out that Ashghal is carrying out expansion works on a number of roads to ease traffic congestion. But it has removed many service roads. Service roads are very important since shops and houses are located along side these roads.

Most of the countries follow the code while laying out roads. The streets and roads in Qatar are designed on the basis of a certain movement of traffic. The 22 February Road and Al Khor Coastal Road have different specifications even though both are highways.
