The infrastructure development works in Wadi Aba Seleel area have been completed, while the other facilities will be formally opened 8th August.

The Wadi Aba Seleel area is in the southwest of Doha Industrial Area where infrastructure works, roads and other facilities, have been completed.

The authority said that the works were undertaken to convert the area into a sustainable part of Doha city, by connecting it to the neighbouring areas and also the main roads networks.

The project included developing the infrastructure for commercial and logistics services in a number of new areas.

This entailed constructing safe, permanent roads of 16km, with two lanes in each direction to replace the unpaved temporary roads near the Logistics Village.

Street lighting in both directions was also part of the project, which will be completed by the end of September next year.

Traffic flow is expected to increase as the newly-developed roads are anticipated to reduce travel time for commuters.

The project also included grading works in the newly developed land which had suffered from from surface and ground water related issues.

Through providing advanced drainage networks, the problem has been resolved and this would effectively prevent flooding.

Part of the Roads and Integrated Infrastructure Projects for Local Areas Programme implemented by Ashghal, Al Jaber Engineering Company implemented the project at a cost of QAR210mn ($58mn).
