Ashghal announces temporary diversion on Mesaieed Road
The Public Works Authority “Ashghal” has announced a temporary diversion on a section of Mesaieed Road in the direction from Doha to Mesaieed.
The closure on the 800-meter section of the road starts after the local access to the family beach in Al Wakra Municipality and will be implemented in coordination with the Traffic Department. The diversion will start on Friday 5 February 2016 and will last one and a half years.
During this period, traffic will be diverted to the existing diversion with the same number of lane. The Public Works Authority had implemented a diversion on the opposite lane in the direction from Mesaieed toward Doha on 15 January 2016 to allow for the construction of a new interchange as part of the Construction of Al Wakra Bypass Road project.
The speed limit will also be lowered from 80 kph to 50 kph throughout the diversion, to ensure the safety of motorists and project workers.
