Key Umm Salal Mohammed Interchange open to traffic
Ashghal delivers the third section of construction works within two weeks, as part of the North Road Corridor Enhancement Project
Umm Salal Mohammed Interchange on Al Shamal Road is open to traffic.
The intersection is a key connection for the residents in the congested neighbourhood of Umm Salal Mohammed.
Composed of two separate levels, Umm Salal Mohammed Interchange includes a dual carriageway main bridge with two lanes in each direction and an additional lane for turning towards the ramps, as well as two light signals.
While the interchange also features four on-and-off ramps – the northern ramps opened today whilst the southern ramps still have construction works underway.
The junction is set to reduce congestion and cut travel times, providing smooth traffic flow from and into Al Shamal Road, by-passing congestion at the Al Kheesa Interchange and affording better access between the service roads and the North Road.
The Umm Salal Mohammed interchange is the third section of construction works opened by Ashghal within two weeks, as part of the North Road Corridor Enhancement Project.
Ashghal had already delivered the Izghawa Interchange and the bridge linking Al Huwaila road to the North Road on 22 October, 2016.
The 5km Al Khor Link Road (from Al Shamal Road to Ras Laffan Roundabout at Al Khor) was opened to traffic after being upgraded into dual three lanes.
