The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will close a small section of an existing diversion on Al Wukair Road as shown on the attached map. The diversion will start on 20 November and last for 7 months, in coordination with the Traffic Police Department. During this period, road users travelling towards Al Wakra will be diverted on to a 1 kilometer two-lane parallel road to continue their journey.

This diversion is required to enable the construction of a major interchange on the Al Wakra Bypass project, part of Ashghal’s Expressway Programme. The project will deliver 11 kilometers of new dual carriageway with five lanes in each direction and five interchanges, providing better connectivity between Doha and Mesaieed and connecting the South of the city to Hamad International Airport and Doha Port. The Public Works Authority requests that all road users abide by the 50 kph speed limit and follow diversion road signs 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.
