Ashghal: Temporary closure on parts of three local streets branching off Al Wakra Hospital street
The Public Works Authority has announced that streets number 1083, 1064, and 1003 branching off the Al Wakra Hospital Street will be closed starting from Al Wakra Hospital Roundabout in the vicinity of Gate 6 to New Al Meera Roundabout. The closure will commence on 22 August 2015 and last until the beginning of February 2016.
The closed streets are located at the first, second, and fourth exit to the right side of Al Wakrah Hospital Street. Ashghal is implementing this temporary closure to allow the Sewer Micro-tunneling line as part of the works to develop the roads and infrastructure in Al Wakra West.
The Public Works Authority had implemented, since the beginning of June, a two-lane closure on Al Wakra Hospital Street starting from Al Wakra Hospital Roundabout in the vicinity of Gate 6 to Al Wukair Road roundabout. Both southbound lanes from Al Wukair Road roundabout to Al Wakra Hospital roundabout will remain open.
Motorists on Al Wakra Hospital Street, going from the New Al Meera Building toward Al Wakra Hospital roundabout and heading north to reach Doha City, will have to turn right on the roundabout onto Al Andalus Street and then turn right at the end of the street onto Abdul Rahman Bin Jassim Street and then make a U turn at Al Jabal Roundabout and drive straight along Abdul Rahman Bin Jassim Street to get to their destination bypassing the closure on Al Wakra Hospital Roundabout.
Ashghal had also been carrying out, as of 3 May 2015, a one lane closure on Al Wakra Hospital Street starting from New Al Meera Roundabout until Al Wakra Hospital Roundabout in the vicinity of Gate 6. Traffic in both directions was diverted onto the two remaining lanes. All these closures will open at the same time by the beginning of February 2016.
