Doha's C-Ring Road project making good progress
Ashghal says the project is on track to meet Q3 2014 completion date
The first phase of the C-Ring Road Development Project in Doha is making good progress, according to Qatar’s Public Works Authority.
The full works on the first phase of the project - which began in May - are expected to be completed as per schedule in Q3, 2014, said Ashghal.
The project involves a 6.3km stretch from C-Ring Road’s intersection with Salwa Road (Jabur bin Ahmed intersection) to Umm Ghuwailina Roundabout and consists of widening C-Ring Road from three lanes to four and converting a number of roundabouts to signal-controlled intersections.
The Umm Ghuwailina Roundabout, also known as the VIP roundabout, has been removed and converted to an intersection.
The pre-final layer of asphalt is currently being laid on the newly added lanes on this intersection and traffic lights traffic lights will soon be installed, connecting them to the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS).
As part of the project, Ashghal has diverted and protected the existing infrastructure utilities in the area and upgraded them, in addition to laying asphalt on both sides of the road stretching from Umm Ghuwailina Roundabout to Najma intersection.
The C-Ring Road development project is part of a series of projects implemented by Ashghal to improve the network of local roads and expressways across the country.
