Ashghal announces permanent shift in this area
Ashghal has announced that the traffic will be permanently shifted onto the lanes of the New Orbital Highway along a 2.5km stretch of the Temporary Truck Route, located 25km west of Doha to the south of Interchange No 24 on Salwa Road.
The move would facilitate the construction of the fifth lane of both the directions of the main carriageway.
This realignment will be implemented in two phases over the next two weeks.
As such, the road users travelling on both directions will be shifted onto parallel roads and can continue their journey towards Salwa Road or Mesaieed as required, as reported by Gulf Times.
The first phase will be implemented Tuesday and will include the complete closure of the eastbound lanes on the existing Temporary Truck Route (TTR), to be replaced with the the truck lanes of the New Orbital Highway.
The second phase will be implemented on December 17 and will include the complete closure of the westbound lanes on the existing Temporary Truck Route to be replaced with the truck lanes of the New Orbital Highway.
The proposed road change has been designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic. It will be implemented and permanently maintained starting from Tuesday.
