The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ has completed the installation of the steel structure of the pedestrian bridge on E- Ring Road, as part of its efforts to enhance road safety across Qatar.

The structure is located between Al-Thumama Intersection and the intersection between Airport Street and E-Ring Road.

The bridge aims to enable pedestrians to cross the E-Ring Road safely, in addition to facilitating access between the residents of Old Airport (Area 45) and Al Rawda ‘Thumama’ (Area 47).

The pedestrian bridge, which is 66m long and 4m wide, is equipped with elevators on both sides to accommodate a large number of users including those with special needs. It is also equipped with lighting systems, a closed-circuit television system (CCTV), fire detection and firefighting systems, as well as a pedestrian counter.

The newly installed bridge forms part of the Interim Upgrade Project on E-Ring Road and Najma Street, which is implemented within Ashghal’s plan to develop the roads infrastructure and enhance traffic safety, with over 90% of road works in the project are complete so far.
