With Qatar’s ambitious road improvement plan now well underway, the public works authority has this week announced several upcoming diversions in different parts of the country.

That includes the 45-day closure of Najma St. between C-Ring and D-Ring roads, which has tangled up traffic in that area.

Here are a few of the larger ones that take effect tomorrow (June 13):

Wakrah/Wukair

Al Hadarma Road between Al Wukair St. and Al Wakrah Road will be permanently closed in both directions as work proceeds on the East West Corridor project.

Motorists trying to reach Barwa City, the Church and the Industrial Area should instead use the newly-opened F-Ring Road, Ashghal said.

Al Khor

One lane of the Corniche in Al Khor will be closed for two months as Ashghal converts the roundabout there into a signal-controlled junction.

The closure affects traffic heading to and from Corniche St. to Al Amir St., but one lane will remain open in each direction.

The median and shoulders on all streets leading to the roundabout will also be closed. In a statement, Ashghal said that the work falls under the roads and drainage program, which aims to develop area infrastructure.

Industrial Area

Part of Al Kassarat St. from Roundabout 23 to Roundabout 33 in the Industrial Area will be closed for six months as Ashghal works to redevelop the roads and infrastructure in the area.

Motorists will be diverted to the opposite side of the ride, which is being expanded to accommodate the additional traffic.

Also in the Industrial Area, Ashghal has set up a diversion from Al Aziziya St. for the next six months as part of the West Corridor project.

The 3km-long street is closed in both directions from the east of the VIP entrance of the Qatar Racing Club (QRC) to the intersection of Al Aziziya St. with Street 1110.

Traffic is being diverted to an alternative route, and access to the main and VIP entrances of the QRC can be availed from East Industrial St.

Will you be affected by the roadwork? Thoughts?

Finally ashgal is learning from past mistakes and developing.. Great work guys… Please penalize and blacklist contractors and their subcontractors who make their workers work under the sun, and those who miss deadlines or don’t complete the projects per specification
