Ashghal announces new detours at Lejbailat, Abu Hamour roundabouts



In tweets posted late last night, Ashghal and the Ministry of Interior have announced that Lejbailat Roundabout (on Al Jamiaa St. after TV R/B, heading to Qatar University) will be closed immediately until Nov. 10.

The sudden closure of the R/B, which is being converted into a signaled intersection ahead of Ashghal’s Nov. 15 deadline, means yet another new diversion for commuters struggling to navigate the West Bay area.

Those approaching Lejbailat from TV R/B going toward Qatar University will be diverted onto a side road that takes them out on Al Markhiya St. and to Onaiza R/B.

If you’re heading toward Lejbailat R/B from Onaiza R/B, you’ll have to take a series of turns to make it to Al Jamiaa St. or Al Markhiya St., depending on your destination.

Meanwhile, diversions at Oryx R/B, which was partially closed at the beginning of the week, will remain in effect through Nov. 15. Arch R/B diversions will be in effect for the next two years.

On the other side of town, Ashghal has also announced that starting today, it is partially closing the road from Abu Hamour R/B to Al Jazeera R/B, through 2014.

The move, which extends an existing road closure from the Church to Mesaimeer R/B, is in preparation for the construction of a flyover bridge from F Ring Road to the Al Jazeera Academy area, Ashghal said in a statement sent on Wednesday.

A new u-turn is in place at the site of the new closure, and commuters trying to head in the direction of the Church will be rerouted to Mesaimeer Immigration R/B.

Ashghal added:

“The area will be covered by directional signs showing the closed roads and the new roads to assist commuters who are advised to follow them for their safety.”
