Ashghal begins East Industrial Street Extension Upgrade Project

The Peninsula

DOHA: The Public Works Authority  (Ashghal) has embarked upon the implementation of the East Industrial Street Extension Upgrade Project, located between East 33 Street Interchange on Industrial Area Road and Aba Al Saleel Interchange on G-Ring Road over a distance of 2.5kg.

Ashghal has noted that the new project is planned to be completed by first quarter (Q1), 2020 at a cost of QR730,000,000, said a release.

The construction will incorporate the revamping of the mainline road, expanding the carriageway from two lanes in each direction into three lanes besides converting three roundabouts into three at grade intersections along with two cycling and pedestrian underpasses

The upgrade will increase road capacity up to 6,000 vehicles per hour, likely shortening travel time at a rate of approximately 50 percent. The road is so significant that it is an access point for key expressways around which receive daily thousands of cars along with the trucks leading to the industrial Area from Hamad Port via Hamad Port Road and from Doha via Industrial Area Road and G-Ring Road.

It will also create better access for traffic movement from Al Furousiya Street and Salwa Road towards Hamad Port and Mesaieed Road.

To facilitate the construction of the East Industrial Street Extension project, the Public Works Authority will close the lanes coming from Aba Al Saleel Interchange on G-Ring Road towards East 33 Street Interchange as per Wednesday 13 June, 2018 till 1 September 2019.

During the detour, designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, traffic will be diverted east to the nearby Al Hefain Interchange on G-Ring Road in place of Aba Al Saleel Interchange.   

Travelers, heading from Hamad Port Road or G-Ring Road for East Industrial Area or local roads located between Street 37 and Street 52, can use al Hefain Interchange, continue straight on Umm Al Seneem Street to Umm Al Saneem Interchange, aka Karwa Interchange, before turning left into Industrial Area Road till East 33 Street Interchange, turn left into East Industrial Street Extension towards East Industrial Area, as illustrated on the attached map.
