The Qatar Rail has announced that it will close two roads - Al Bidda street and Al Diwan street - starting Friday, February 2. It will also reinstate another road, Khalifa Street East bound, to its original alignment on the same day.
The roads are closed due to the Doha metro project and will have diversions. A part of Al Diwan Street between Electricity Intersection and Nasser Bin Khalid will be diverted from February 2, 2018 and March 15, 2018 due to the construction of the west entrance of Msheireb Station.

Al Bidda Street South bound closure between February 02, 2018 and February 23, 2018 is for the reinstatement of Al Bidda Street Southbound to original alignment due to completion of the construction of pedestrian underpass between Corniche station and Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex.
The diversions of the road will be shown in the map as pictured above. Qatar Rail has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit and follow diversion road signs to ensure safety.
