The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, announces that it will need to close the access to Al Hedab Street from Al Gharrafa Street in order to construct a new 3km underpass on the Dukhan Highway East project.
The diversion will allow Ashghal to construct the new underpass, which will extend from Huwar Street to Sheikh Faisal Roundabout and will provide free-flowing movement for road users travelling north from Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street to Al Shamal Road.
The proposed access change is located at the intersection of Al Hedab Street and Al Gharrafa Street and has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic. The access change will be implemented from tomorrow and will be in operation until 2019.
As shown on the map, road users who usually use Al Hedab Street to travel to and from the Gharrafa Family Park or Al Gharrafa Elementary Girls School areas are advised to use the intersection of Al Hazm Street and Al Gharrafa Street to travel to Al Shamal Road, Thani Bin Jassim Street or Qatar Foundation.
Ashghal advises that there will be no reduction in the number of lanes in either direction on Al Gharrafa Street, Al Hazm Street or Umm Al Zubar Street.
