Ashghal's work on Civil Defense junction to wrap up in September this year.
Construction works to convert the Civil Defense Roundabout into a signalled junction are drawing to a close.
Ashghal informs that work on the intersection is expected to finish by the end of September, a slightly extended deadline from its previously forecast date, which was the middle of September, The Peninsula reports.
The works include the expansion from three to four lanes on both Al Istiqlal St and Mohammed bin Thani Street, where presently one lane is closed in both directions.
For those heading to Hamad Medical City via Civil Defense junction and for vehicles coming from Sports Roundabout and turning left to go towards TV Roundabout, the Public Works Authority has added an additional turning lane.
The intersection gets its name from the Civil Defense headquarters which used to sit at the northeast corner of the junction, having been transformed into an artists-in-residence program under Qatar Museums called the Doha Fire Station.
Once completed, drivers will have easier access the station’s new Cafe #999 and food truck.
