Three major road projects on the western and south-western side of Qatar are in advanced stages of development, Ashghal, the Qatar Public Works Authority, has confirmed

They are the Rawdat-Rashed road (Phase 3), the New Industrial Area interchange on the Orbital highway and roads and infrastructure developments in Bani Hajer North, according to a report in Ashghal in-house magazine's April 2017 edition.

The completion of the Rawdat Rashed road is a major accomplishment as it provides a direct link between Salwa Road and the Dukhan Expressway. The Phase 3 of the Rawdat-Rashed road development project consists of a 14-km road with three lanes on either side. Ashghal officials expect the third phase of project to be completed by the last quarter of this year.

About 40% of the Phase 3 work has been completed. The road extends north from the end of Phase 2 (the work of which is already completed) at the new roundabout north of Rawdat-Rashed village to Lebsayyer interchange on the Dukhan highway. This is in addition to the construction of a 2.8-km dual road heading east with two lanes in each direction to connect the new road with Al Sheehaniya.

According to the Ashghal authorities, nearly 70% of the interchange is almost complete. Traffic though the interchange would start on its completion by the end of this year.

More than 70% of the works in Bani Hajer North, including bridges and tunnels, is already over. Through the works in Bani Hajer area the authorities aim to revamp the infrastructure and rehabilitate the area's road network.

Works are taking place in about 21km of the local roads, it is reported. The expected commissioning of the project is in the last quarter of this year. The area has more than 550 residences.
