The service road will be completely open to traffic during the day, except for Friday 7 December; two out of the three lanes of the service road will be opened to traffic. During this period, traffic will be diverted to Al Luqta Street through Abdul Rahman Bin Awf Street, as shown in the attached map. Motorists who wish to turn left or make a U-Turn at the roundabout, are advised to drive through Al Luqta Street and make a U-turn. The diversion aims to enable asphalt works as part of Phase 1 of Ashghal project aiming to convert Immigration R/A to an intersection and to develop parts of service roads on 22 February Road, in order to improve traffic movement and increase the intersection’s capacity.

The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
