Ashghal starts construction works for development of Phase 1 of Rawdat Rashed to Umm Garn road
The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced that ALCAT Contracting Company has started construction works for phase one of the Rawdat Rashed to Umm Garn Road.
The 33 Km road which is perpendicular to Salwa Road faces a north direction; it also stretches past Rawdat Rashed area to Dukhan Road. The project has been divided into 5 different stages to facilitate the construction and reduce the impact of construction works on residents and visitors of the area.
Phase one is located near Salwa Road facing a north direction and includes the construction of an 8.5 Km dual three-lane carriageway stretching from Salwa Road to a site near the existing entrance of Rawdat Rashed area. This phase is expected to be completed in Q2, 2016.
Phase 2 will include the construction of a 10.4 Km dual three-lane carriageway. The road starts from where phase one ended and stretches all the way to a new roundabout that will link to an existing road in Al Shahaniya, past Rawdat Rashed area. Bin Omran Trading Contracting is responsible for implementing phase two of the project which is expected to be completed in Q2, 2016.
The project aims at providing a safe and developed road network linking Salwa Road to Dukhan Road and easing the traffic flow around the Rawdat Rashed residential area. The additional number of lanes and the right lane designated for heavy vehicles will increase traffic capacity. The project will provide improved street lights to create safer roads and environment for both the travellers and the community.
