which connects Al Wajbah Street and Al Shafi Street in Rayyan area to
complete road construction and utility works on the stretch.
The closure until March next year will be on local roads to the south of
Education City, Ashghal said yesterday. Road users travelling between
Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street and Al Wajbah Street are advised to take the
following routes: Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street to Al Wajbah Street – Road
users from Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street towards Al Wajbah Street will be
required to take a right turn onto Ermaila Street and continue straight

right onto Al Wajbah Street, do a U-turn and return towards the
roundabout at the intersection of Al Wajbah and Al Hamd Street.
