A traffic diversion will be in place for two years from Saturday near Mesaimeer Intersection (Leabidly Roundabout) on E-Ring Road leading from Doha and Industrial Area as also from the Doha Expressway to E-Ring Road, Rawdat Al Khail Street and Industrial Area.
The detour, designed in collaboration with the General Directorate of Traffic, is to facilitate the revamp of Al Obeidaly Roundabout into a multi-level interchange. Also, the Al Obeidaly Roundabout Bridge will be closed to traffic from E-Ring Road towards Industrial Area.
During the diversion, the Doha- bound traffic from Industrial Area will be detoured right prior to Al Obeidaly Roundabout to a newly built road towards E-Ring Road, where a new light signal was installed to control traffic in all directions including Rawdat Al Khail Street and Doha Expressway.
Road users travelling from Doha Expressway towards Industrial Area, E-Ring Road or Rawdat Al Khail Street can take right prior to Al Obeidaly Roundabout onto a newly built road towards Industrial Area Road, where a new light signal was installed to control traffic in all directions involving E-Ring Road.
Motorists travelling from E-Ring Road towards Industrial Area can use the recently-installed light signal before Al Obeidaly Roundabout and take left onto the new route towards Industrial Area Road.
Road users travelling from Rawdat Al Khail Street towards Industrial Area can use Al Obeidaly Roundabout then turn left onto the third exit and turn right via the next signal towards Industrial Area Road.
Also, motorists travelling from Rawdat Al Khail Street towards Industrial Area can turn right at Al Obeidaly roundabout onto the next light signal, then perform a U-turn towards the new route and the Industrial Area Route.
Ashghal will install road signs providing motorists with advance notice of the new road layout. Road users have been requested to abide by the new speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure safety.
