The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announces a traffic shift in both directions on one kilometre of Al Bustan Street, before Faleh Bin Nasser Intersection on Salwa Road. The diversion will be implemented on Sunday 10 February 2019 in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic and will be in place for one year and a half to allow the completion of the road works.

During this time, traffic in both directions on Al Bustan Street will be shifted to newly constructed parallel roads with two lanes each, as shown in the attached map. The exit on Al Eshaiqer Street will also be closed; therefore, road users will be required to use Salwa Road or Ekhrais Street to reach their destinations. The Public works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic change. Ashghal requests all road users to abide by the reduced 50 kph speed limit on alternative routes (the new parallel roads) and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
