Al Hazm Intersection on Al Khafji Street was opened to traffic on Saturday 20 February 2016 after being converted from a roundabout to a signal-controlled intersection, while remaining sidewalk pavement works are still in progress.

Opening of Al Khafji Intersection comes as part of the works on Al Khafji Street Development Project. This phase of the project included converting Al Hazm Roundabout to a signal-controlled intersection and the expansion of Al Khafji Street from three to four lanes starting from Al Hazm Intersection for 300 metres towards Al Jamiaa Intersection, and from Al Hazm Intersection to connect it with Jelaiha Intersection (first stage) to become four lanes instead of three.

Al Khafji Street Development project is part of a series of vital projects implemented by Ashghal to improve and enhance the network of local roads and expressways, and enhance the traffic safety across the country. Road enhancement works include converting roundabouts to signal-controlled intersections, installing Intelligent Transportation Systems, street lighting, and pedestrians’ paths.
