Temporary traffic diversion at Al Thumama junction in eight phases
The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ will implement a temporary traffic diversion at Al Thumama Junction, which is part of the E-Ring and Najma roads development project.
The traffic diversion will be implemented in eight phases to minimise the impact on traffic in the area. The first phase starts on Thursday 31 March 2016 after midnight and will last until Saturday 2 April 2016 at 5 am. The remaining seven phases will be carried out during the following seven weekends, each lasting from Thursday midnight to Saturday morning 5 am. It is anticipated that the last phase will be completed by 21 May 2016.
During each phase, only a part of the junction will be closed and signage will be installed to indicate the closed and the open parts of the road as shown in the attached map. The exception will be the last phase, which will require the full closure of the junction for two days.
