The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces that it will implement a traffic diversion on a 1 kilometre section of Al Khor Road, located after Woqoud Petrol Station for those coming from Al Doha towards Al Khor.

The diversion will start on Tuesday, 12 December 2017, and will last for a period of six months, in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic. Traffic on this section of Al Khor Road will be diverted to a newly-constructed temporary road parallel to the closed road, which includes two lanes in each direction, as shown in the attached map.

The diversion aims to allow the construction of the signal-controlled intersection No. 8 on Al Khor Road, which will provide a new route to Al Bayt Stadium. This traffic diversion is part of a new project to upgrade link roads to Al-Bayt Stadium in Al-Khor, which includes the construction of 5.3 kilometres of roads, with three lanes in each direction, all leading to four sides of the stadium. These roads will facilitate access to bus stations and car parking around the stadium. The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the diversion, and requests all road users to abide by the new speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
