With the Qatar National Sports Day less than two months away, the Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics (MDPS) and Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) are conducting an online survey to study the level of public participation in different sports activities in the country.

The survey titled “Exercising Sports Activities in Qatar” is available on the MDPS website: www.mdps.gov.qa or QOC website: www.olympic.qa. Click here to view the survey.

According to the MDPS, the survey will help gather the views of the general public and identify level of participants engaged in sport and physical activities, identify key trends in sports, fitness and recreation participation by age groups, individuals’ spending on sports, favourite sports facilities/times for exercising sports as well as identifying the level of participation in Qatar’s National Sports Day in the previous years.

The result will be announced during the celebration of the National Sports Day on Tuesday, February, 10th 2015.

Ashghal opens new entrance to Katara

December 21, 2014 |

As part of ongoing works on the Lusail Expressway project, the Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ has announced the opening of a new entrance to Katara Cultural Village from Al Lusail Street.

Ashghal-Katara

The new entrance will provide a second entry into Katara and will help to ease congestion in the area by enabling northbound traffic to enter Katara without queuing at the roundabout.

On 22 December, the authority will close the existing entrance to Katara via the Lagoon Roundabout to complete vital construction works between Lusail Street and Katara. The closure will allow a work-zone for the construction of the Lusail Expressway and the metro station. The existing exit from Katara at the roundabout will remain open throughout.

Once the closure is in place, vehicles travelling southbound will be required to make a U-turn at Al Gassar Junction to access Katara.

Throughout the construction period, two lanes will remain open to traffic in both directions on Lusail Street. Additionally, the existing right turn lane from Legtaifiya Street on to Lusail Street will remain open. Commuters can use a new slip road for travelling southbound and turning west along Legtaifiya Street.
