Ashghal has embarked upon the implementation of the QR730mn East Industrial Street Extension Upgrade Project, for a distance of approximately 2.5km. The project area is located between East 33 Street Interchange on the Industrial Area Road and Aba Al Saleel Interchange on G-Ring Road. The expected completion is by the first quarter of 2020.
The construction will incorporate the revamping of the mainline road, expanding the carriageway from two lanes in each direction into three lanes each besides converting three roundabouts into three at-grade intersections along with two cycling and pedestrian underpasses. The upgrade will increase road capacity up to 6,000 vehicles per hour, which is expected to reduce the travel time, by almost 50%.
The road is an access point for key expressways which receive thousands of cars daily along with the trucks leading to the Industrial Area from Hamad Port via Hamad Port Road and from Doha via Industrial Area Road and G-Ring Road.
It will also create better access for traffic movement from Al Furousiya Street and Salwa Road towards Hamad Port and Mesaieed Road.
To facilitate the construction of the East Industrial Street Extension project, the authority will close the lanes coming from Aba Al Saleel Interchange on the G-Ring Road towards East 33 Street Interchange between June 13 this year and September 1, 2019.
During the detour, designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, traffic will be diverted east to the nearby Al Hefain Interchange on G-Ring Road in place of Aba Al Saleel Interchange.
