The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has opened the main lanes of Al Sadd Street after completion of infrastructure works. Three lanes in each direction of the carriageway were open for traffic as part of the Road Improvement Works in various areas of Greater Doha (Phase 9).
The scope of overall works to be implemented within the project aims to upgrade Al Sadd Intersection, develop infrastructure utilities services in the intersection as well as intersecting streets, in addition to upgrading Al Sadd and Jawaan Street at a length of 3.2 km.
Overall progress on the project has reached 40 percent.
Project Engineer Ali Sami Jamal emphasised the department’s keenness to accelerate the development works as the main carriageway of Al Sadd Street was open for traffic six months ahead of scheduled.
Eng Jamal highlighted the importance of upgrading Al Sadd Intersection as well as Al Sadd and Jawaan Streets as they are located in a congested and highly-frequented area that serves many service facilities, shops, commercial centers, and educational and health institutions.
Eng Jamal said works are under way on Al Sadd Street and Jawaan Street which include providing and upgrading service roads as well as beautification and landscaping works alongside both streets and in the median. All works are scheduled to be completed in Q4 2021.
Upon completion of works on the project, Ashghal will deliver road developments at a total length of 3.2 km on Al Sadd and Jawaan Streets in addition to their intersection to improve the traffic flow at Al Sadd Intersection.
The scope of works will also include the provision of 6.4 km of pedestrian footpaths and cycle paths, landscaping works, and upgrading street lighting systems of both streets.
The works of this project are part of Ashghal’s efforts to improve the existing services and utilities and upgrade the road network in Doha City to cope with the national economic development and social growth requirements in Qatar.
The project is being implemented by JH Construction Company under the supervision of Gulf Engineering and Industrial Consultancy.
