The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, announces opening of temporary signalised roundabout at Al Waab Intersection including the following temporary road layout changes:

  • Mehairja Street expansion from one (1) lane to two (2) lanes in each direction.
  • New eastbound connection from Mehairja Street to Al Samriya Street through Al Khufoos and Al Baidaa Streets.
  • Adding a third lane to turn left at Mehairja Intersection for those coming from Muaither.

These temporary layout changes have been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic to facilitate the construction of the interchange that will replace Al Waab Intersection and a new flyover with four lanes in each direction along Al Bustan Street South. It will be implemented on Sunday 23 February 2019 and will remain in place for a period of sixteen (16) months. Road users travelling east from Muaither to Al Sadd, using Al Waab Street, can utilize an alternative route via Mehairja and Al Khufoos Streets.

The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic shift and requests all road users to abide by the 50kph speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
