Ashghal to close Lebdaya Roundabout soon

The Peninsula

Doha: The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, has announced that it will close the existing Lebdaya Roundabout (known as Sheikh Mubarak Al Thani Roundabout) and introduce a newly built roundabout and diversion routes to the southeast of the existing route. 
Ashghal will also close the roundabout exit from Huwar Street to Al Rayyan Al Qadeem Street, as shown on the attached map.
The diversion, which has been implemented in coordination with the Traffic Police Department, will be in operation from October 21, 2016 and last for two years.
The diversion is required to enable Ashghal to commence construction of essential multi-level junctions as part of the Al Rayyan Upgrade Project C2.
As shown on the attached map, Ashghal has established several alternative routes for road users to follow to reach their respective destinations:
Doha to Al Gharrafa: Road users can turn right at the Lebdaya Roundabout onto Al Beday Street and travel north before turning left onto the new Al Maqareen Street. Motorists will need to travel along Al Maqareen Street before turning right onto Huwar Street. 
Doha to Bani Hajer: Road users can turn left at the Lebdaya Roundabout and travel south before turning right onto Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Road and continuing towards Bani Hajer. Road users travelling from Bani Hajer to Doha will be 
unaffected.
