Ashghal has opened access to a new bridge, reaching from the F-Ring Road to Mesaimeer Road, forming a direct route to Abu Hamour, Al Mamoura and Salwa Road.
The new bridge forms part of the vital Rawdat Al Khail Road project, and is set to improve traffic flow in the area.
Vehicles will be able to use two additional temporary lanes for making a U-turn to F-Ring Road under the bridge, The Peninsula reports.
This roadway will offer access to Barwa Village, the Religious Complex, Al Wakra and Industrial Area using the new 1-kilometre long service road.
There are also two lanes to make a U-turn under the bridge in front of Al Jazeera Academy, providing access to this area through the service road.
The Industrial Area will also be connected with Doha city centre and make it easier to reach Barwa Village and the commercial area.
It also connects the F-Ring Road with the Wholesale Market and Mesaimeer Street.
This new access will permit ease of movement directly from Al Waab, Salwa Road, Bu Hamour and Al Maamoura to Al Thumama, HIA and the Corniche.
Along with F-Ring Road, the new bridge will deliver a 14-km free-flow highway without any traffic signals, providing easy access to and from HIA, Salwa Road, Bu Hamour, Al Maamoura and Al Thumama.
In addition, the closed exits of Rawdat Al Khalfat, Rawdat Al Dabdaba, Al Kharija Street and Al Rabyat Street will be opened shortly.
Included in the Rawdat Al Khail Road project is an 8km dual carriageway with three lanes in each direction in addition to six multi-level interchanges which encompass East Industrial Interchange, Karwa Interchange, Barwa Interchange, Barwa Village Access Interchange, Woqod Interchange, and Al Jazeera Interchange on F-Ring Road.
