Diversion at Civil Defense junction for next week
Ongoing roadworks to improve the traffic flow in Doha include a major diversion around the Civil Defense Roundabout, in effect from Tuesday, 23 August to Friday, 26 August
There is a major diversion at the Civil Defense roundabout which will affect traffic for the next week in Doha.
The Civil Defense junction is being overhauled, with several lanes in the area closed for construction, starting Tuesday, 23 August.
Ashghal said in a statement that the intersection is entering the final phase of works, which entails converting the junction from a roundabout into a signalled junction.
Diversions will be in effect from Tuesday, 23 August till Friday, 26 August.
As per the map, commuters going towards the Corniche from Bin Omran and vice versa will be required to turn right or left instead.
Motorists coming from Khalifa intersection can turn right toward Medical City or go straight to Onaiza Street. The left lane leading to Al Bidaa will be closed.
Drivers travelling from Onaiza Street will not be able to turn left to go to Medical City, but can turn right toward Al Bidaa or go straight to Khalifa intersection.
When this closure is behind us, it will take about another month of works before the intersection is completed and fully open for traffic.
