Ashghal has opened a new phase of Dukhan Highway Central to traffic in
both directions on Sunday 14 August 2016.
The 3.3 km long phase of the road that newly opened to traffic is
located between the Temporary Truck Route and Al Wajbah Interchange. The new
phase passes under the bridges of Al Jahhaniya Interchange and the Orbital
Highway, and it will allow road users to shift from temporary local roads and
service roads to four free-flowing traffic lanes on the Dukhan Highway,
providing vastly more efficient and safe transit between Doha and Al
The newly opened phase of the project forms part of Al Jahhaniya
Interchange construction works. Upon the completion of this four-level
interchange by the end of this year, it will connect road users to local
residential and business properties, and Al Rayyan Stadium which will host 2022
FIFA World Cup.
In an effort to ensure the safety of road users, Ashghal advises that a
temporary speed limit of 80 kilometre per hour will be implemented on the newly
opened phase, given that construction works are still in progress on other
sections of the Dukhan Highway and the nearby New Orbital Highway and Truck
It is worth mentioning that the Public Works Authority has completed
three flyovers and the road that connects Celebration Road to the Dukhan
Highway earlier this year, as part of Dukhan Highway Central project.
The Dukhan Highway Central, which forms a key part of Ashghal’s
expressway upgrade scheme in Qatar, will establish a 15 kilometre long highway
from the west of Doha to Al Sheehaniya and other key public venues.
