Attention: These lanes to be temporarily closed
Due to the works related to the completion of the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route Project, The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ will temporarily close the northbound lanes on the Orbital Road.
The closure will cover a distance of 10km, starting from the Orbital Road crossing over Al Shamal Road to Ras Laffan Road.
The traffic change is designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, and will continue for 5 days starting midnight tomorrow (April 26), and ends on Tuesday 1 May 2018. During the diversion, motorists travelling via northbound Orbital Road can use Al Mazrooah Road instead of the Orbital Road through Al Khor Interchange on Al Shamal Road, and then continue on the Al Khor Link Road, then turn left at the next roundabout to join the Ras Laffan Road, as illustrated on the map.
The Public Works Authority will install road signs guiding motorists to the changes on the road. ‘Ashghal’ has asked all road users to abide by the speed limit, which remains at 80 kph for all sections of the Orbital Road and the adjacent roads, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
