Ashghal to temporarily close a section of this road starting today
A 1km section of Al Furousiya Street leading from Muaither Roundabout to Al Furousiya Roundabout will be closed by Ashghal from today for a period of four months.
During the closure, traffic on the closed section will be diverted to a newly-constructed temporary parallel road, which includes three lanes.
Further lanes in the other direction on Al Furousiya Street will remain open to traffic, as reported by Gulf Times.
The closure has come in order to enable construction works as part of Al Furousiya Street Development Project, which includes increasing the number of lanes on Al Furousiya Street to four in each direction.
The Al Furousiya and Muaither Roundabouts will also be converted into a signal-controlled intersections to ease traffic congestion in the area, in addition to providing street lighting and pedestrian and cyclist lanes, among other works.
