The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ has announced the completion of stage one of construction works on the new 1.2km road and the opening of its carriageway to traffic.

The newly opened road connects Al Tarfa Intersection (known as Gulf Intersection) to the new Qatar University Metro Station. This opening is part of Ashghal’s strategy to improve the transport network in Qatar as the new road provides a direct access to the Doha Metro’s Red line newly operational Qatar University Station. Ashghal was keen to accelerate the completion of the first phase of the project to serve the launch of operations of the Qatar University Metro Station and facilitate access to it and will finish works onthe second stage of the project by Q1 2020.

The remaining works include the construction of a roundabout to connect with Qatar University, the provision of additional parking on both sides of the road, in addition to road lighting works, the development of a rainwater drainage network, and landscaping works on both sides of the road. It is worth mentioning that this project falls within a series of projects implemented by Ashghal to improve the road network throughout the country and expand the streets to increase their capacities.
