The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, will convert traffic on Tilted Roundabout into a parallel signalised intersection to enable the construction of a 2.2 kilometre underpass that will extend between the northern and southern areas of Al Gharrafa.
The proposed road change has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic and will be implemented on 31 March 2017, with an expected operation period of 9 months.
The new road layout will enable Ashghal to accelerate construction of the proposed Tilted Interchange, a two-level interchange that will facilitate free-flowing movement at the intersection of Al Luqta Street and Al Gharrafa Road.
As illustrated on the attached map, the road change will modify the existing roundabout into a signal-controlled intersection. Road users travelling on Al Luqta Street, Al Gharrafa Street and Huwar Street will experience a slight deviation from the existing road alignment before reaching the signalised interchange.
The signalised interchange will cater for motorists travelling in all directions between Doha, Dukhan and Al Gharrafa and Huwar Street, and includes free right turns to provide as much free-flowing movement as possible. Ashghal advises that it will not reduce the existing number of lanes on Al Luqta Street, Al Gharrafa Street and Huwar Street. The temporary road layout on Al Luqta Street and Al Gharrafa Street will still provide three lanes in each direction, while Huwar Street will still provide two lanes in each direction.
To ensure the safety of road users, the speed limit on Al Luqta Street will be reduced to 50 kph. The Public Works Authority requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure their safety.
