Temporary closure of one lane in each direction on Najma Street
The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced that one lane in each direction will be temporarily closed on Najma Street (approximately 700 meters), starting from Tuesday 7 July 2015 for a period of 4 months.
The remaining two lanes will stay open on either side of the road throughout the construction period. Traffic safety measures will also be in place on Al Hadara and Al Thumama Streets to allow construction of the new intersection on Najma Street.
This traffic diversion aims to facilitate the construction of a new signal-controlled junction at the intersection of Al Hadara Street with Najma Street and Al Thumama Street which will enhance traffic flow in the area. The works form part of the interim upgrade project on E-Ring Road and Najma Street that will also include infrastructure works associated with utilities, landscaping, street lighting, footpaths and cycle paths.
