Ashghal opens the Bridge Extending from F-Ring Road to Mesaimeer Road


This bridge provides a direct and free-flow traffic to Bu Hamour, Al Maamoura and Salwa Road
The Public Works Authority announced that the new bridge extending from the F-Ring Road to Mesaimeer Road was opened to traffic on July 4th 2016.

This bridge provides a direct and free-flow traffic to Bu Hamour, Al Maamoura and Salwa Road.

The opening was attended by H.E. Eng. Nasser bin Ali Al Mawlawi, President of the Public Works Authority, Eng. Jalal Yousef Al Salhi, Director of the Infrastructure Affairs, Eng. Nasser Ghaith Al Kuwari, Manager of the Expressway Projects Department, and Eng. Yousef Al Emadi, Manager of the Roads Maintenance Department in Ashghal. From the Traffic Department, in attendance was Brigadier. Mohamed Saad Al Kharji, Director of Traffic Department, Brigadier Mohamed Marafi, head of Planning and Traffic Safety, and Mr. Abdulrahman Al Khulaifi the Member of the Central Municipal Council for the 10th District.

Mr. Abdullah Dhafer Al Hajri, the first Qatari national that passed the bridge right after its opening praised the new bridge and commented on its importance to traffic, especially traffic coming from Hamad International Airport and Al Wakra towards Doha.

The bridge with the road connected to it will allow moving easily and directly from Al Waab, Salwa Road, Bu Hamour and Al Maamoura to Al Thumama, Hamad International Airport and the Corniche.

The bridge along with the F-Ring Road will provide a 14 km free-flow highway without any traffic signals, which will enhance traffic movement and provides easy access to and from vital areas such as Hamad International Airport, Salwa Road, Bu Hamour, Al Maamoura and Al Thumama.

Additionally, two temporary extra lanes will be available to enable vehicles from making a U-turn onto the F-Ring Road under the bridge to reach Barwa Village, the Religious Complex, Al Wakra and the Industrial Area through using the new service road which is approximately 1 km long. This is in addition to providing two lanes to make a U-turn under the bridge in front of Al Jazeera Academy, enabling access to this area through the service road. The closed exits of Rawdat Al Khalfat, Rawdat Al Dabdaba, Al Kharija Street and Al Rabyat Street will be opened. The bridge with the F-Ring Road extension will make accessing a number of important destinations and schools much easier and faster.

This bridge is a vital part of Rawdat Al Khail Road project, which aims to enhance traffic flow and ease traffic jam in the area. It will also connect the Industrial Area with Doha city centre and make it easier to reach Barwa Village and the commercial area. It also connects the F-Ring Road with the Whole Sale Market and Mesaimeer Street.

The Rawdat Al Khail Road project includes building an 8 km long dual carriageway road with three lanes in each direction, in addition to building six multi-level interchanges, namely: the East Industrial Interchange, Karwa Interchange, Barwa Interchange, Barwa Village access Interchange, Woqod Interchange, and Al Jazeera Interchange on the F-Ring Road.
