Lusail Street will be closed from 10 June until end of 2017, in coordination with the Traffic Department.

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has advised it will close the entry and exit points of Lusail Street from Labhariya Street and divert traffic.

The closure starts tomorrow 10 June and lasts until end of 2017, The Peninsula reports.

Ashghal advises that with the local access entrance and exit to Lusail Street closed, road users travelling to The Pearl-Qatar and Doha to use the traffic signalised junction that connects Legtaifiya Street to Lusail Street.

Road users in the local area can access Lusail Street by using Wadi Rawdan Street and Legtaifiya Street.

The closure comes on the back of the implementation of a storm water drainage network and permanent road works on Lusail Expressway.

Ashghal expects better traffic between The Pearl-Qatar and Doha with the reduction of traffic on Al Istiqlal Street.

Road signs advising road users of the diversion will be installed and the authority has urged road users to abide by speed limits and follow signs for safety.

Additional roadworks in Doha includes three bi-directional back roads near the Industrial Area, behind Barwa Commercial Avenue being opened by Ashghal.

An additional two back roads will be opened in the third quarter of this year.

The back roads include five bi-directional roads extending over 8km, with three opened and the remaining two nearing completion.

When the five roads are complete they will provide easy and safe access to offices and commercial and residential establishments near the Industrial Area.

They form part of the Rawdat Al Khail Street Extension project being implemented by Ashghal within its Expressway Programme which includes construction of a 17km dual carriageway along Bu Hamour/Al Muntazah Street from EastIndustrial Road Intersection to Woqod Intersection.

The roads also include car parking, pavement and landscaping.

The main road will include four lanes in each direction, separated by a median, with adjacent service roads along the line and the main line of F-Ring Road will include three lanes in each direction, separated by a median.

Not only will the Rawdat Al Khail Street Extension project contribute to improving traffic and ease congestions, it will also connect the Industrial Area with the centre of Doha City, facilitate access to Barwa City and commercial areas, and connect F-Ring Road with Wholesale Market Street and Mesaimeer Road in addition to providing a wide network of pedestrian and cyclist lanes to enhance safety.
