Completion of Package 1 of the Roads and Infrastructure Development Project in Al-Wajba East


Completion of Package 1 of Al Wajba East Project which serves around 388 citizens’ subdivisions

The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced the completion of Package 1 of the Roads and Infrastructure Development project, aimed at providing integrated road and infrastructure services to the residents of this vital area. This comes as part of the authority’s efforts to serve all parts of the country with advanced infrastructure and build a sustainable future in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.

Eng. Fahad Mohammed Al-Otaibi, Head of Western Areas Section of the Roads Projects Department at Ashghal, explained that Ashghal is implementing a plan consisting of two packages to upgrade Al-Wajba East, of which the first package is completed and serves about 388 land plots within citizens subdivisions, and the third package will serve 417 land plots once completed. The two packages will provide all road network, drainage network, and rainwater drainage services and other important services to the area residents.

As for the first package which was recently completed by Ashghal, Eng. Abdulla Al-Suwaidi, Project Engineer in the Western Areas Section at the Roads Projects Department, stated that works included the construction of a 17 km road network to enhance traffic flow and provide connectivity with future public facilities in the area. This is in addition to providing traffic safety elements such as street lighting systems and directional signs, along with 29 km of shared cycling and pedestrian paths and more than 2800 car parking.

The development of infrastructure services included the provision of a 14 km drainage network, 16.6 km of surface and groundwater drainage network, 8.4 km of treated water network, and the extension of the potable water pipes and connecting them to the main potable water network.

It is worth mentioning that local materials were used, and local manufacturers were relied on for most of the works of the first package, bringing the local component to 70% of the total materials used in the project. Materials such as lighting poles, directional and traffic signs, drainage and rainwater drainage pipes, asphalt, precast manholes, concrete, rebar, and other materials were supplied. 

It is also worth noting that in 2022, Ashghal announced the completion of the development works of Al Wadi Park Natural Reserve in Al-Wajba East, where the completed works included enhancing green areas by planting 836 trees, providing irrigation network lines as well as constructing a 1.5 km metal fence around the reserve along with three gates to the North, South and East of the reserve for facilitated access. The reserve was also provided with benches for visitors, bicycle parking spaces, an advanced lighting system, and two prayer areas. Works also included the construction of 1.1 km of pedestrian and cycling paths and 1.1 km of jogging paths.​
