Part of Al Furousiya Street closed for nine months

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced that it will close a 1.5km section of Al Furousiya Street, in the direction leading from Al Manaseer Intersection to Muaither Roundabout, from Sunday for nine months.

The closure is being carried out in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic. During the closure period, traffic on part of Al Furousiya Street will be diverted to a parallel temporary road, which has three lanes, as shown on the map above. 

Lanes in the other direction of Al Furousiya Street will remain open to traffic, as well as access to Aspire Park and nearby local roads, Ashghal has said in a press statement.

The diversion aims to enable construction works as part of the Al Furousiya Street Development Project, which includes increasing the number of lanes on Al Furousiya Street to four in each direction with a service road on both sides of the street. 

This is in addition to converting the Al Furousiya and Muaither roundabouts into signal-controlled intersections in order to enhance traffic flow and ease congestion in the area, the statement notes.

Ashghal will instal road signs advising motorists of the closure. It has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit and follow road signs to ensure their safety.
