The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ will temporarily close 5.5 kilometres of the southbound lanes on Al Shamal Road between Rasheeda Interchange and Al Khor Interchange in order to complete the installation of signage gantries on Orbital Road. The diversion, designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, will be implemented on Friday 10 August 2018 and will be in place from 06:00 am to 07:00 am (one hour).

As shown on the attached map, road users travelling southbound along Al Shamal Road heading to Doha will be required take Exit 40 at Rasheeda Interchange and follow the diversion signs to get on to Farms Road. They must then continue on and cross over the bridge at Megareen Bakheela Interchange leading to Al Mazrouah Road and then take the slip road to the right at Al Khor Interchange to join Al Shamal Road and continue their journey towards Doha. The Public Works Authority will install the new guiding signage, requesting all road users to abide by the speed limit at 80 kph and follow the new signs for their safety.
