The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will implement a temporary traffic diversion affecting a 1.3km northbound stretch of Huwar Street, near the Old Al Rayyan area, and a 500m stretch along Al Maqareen Street.
The detour starts on Friday, August 10 and will continue for two months.
The diversion has been designed in co-ordination with the General Directorate of Traffic to facilitate construction on the Al Rayyan Road Upgrade project, Ashghal has said in a press statement.
As shown on the attached map, road users travelling north from Al Rayyan Al Jadeed Street can use the first U-turn to travel towards Al Rayyan, Bani Hajer and Education City, or the second U-turn to travel to the reconfigured Sheikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Thani Roundabout. They can also take the right turn towards Al Maqareen Street to travel to Al Beday Street.
Road users can also continue straight from the temporary traffic signal to travel towards Tilted Interchange, the statement explains.
Meanwhile, road users travelling south from Tilted Interchange can use the reconfigured Sheikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Thani Roundabout to travel towards Al Rayyan, Bani Hajer and Education City. They can also take the third exit at the roundabout to travel back towards the north or east towards Al Maqareen Street and Al Beday Street.
Road users travelling west on Al Maqareen Street can use the temporary roundabout and temporary traffic signal to continue their journey towards Tilted Interchange. They can also use the second U-turn to travel towards Al Rayyan, Bani Hajer and Education City.
Ashghal has said it will install road signs advising motorists of the traffic shift. It has requested all road users to abide by the speed limit that has been reduced from 50kmph to 40kmph along the diversion routes, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
