The Authority has already completed the phase related to Jasim Bin Mohammed Street and Old Diwan intersection on Al Rayyan Road. This phase extends across 1.5 km and connects several vital commercial areas such as Souq Waqif and Msheireb Downtown Doha project which is currently in progress.
The main construction works on this phase is nearly completed while the landscaping, services and sidewalks are currently being completed without causing any impact on the existing traffic flow in the area.
Jasim Bin Mohammed Street and Al Rayyan Road upgrade project aims to enhance accesses to Souq Waqif and other commercial entities in the surrounding area. The project will add an aesthetic touch that preserves the architectural and cultural character of the area.
Earlier this year, in March Ashghal awarded the contract for phases one and two of the project. The last phase of the project is currently in tendering process with work expected to start later this year.
The project is part of Ashghals’ Expressway Programme that will provide vital highway links across Qatar connecting key cities, towns and villages. Delivering more than 34 major projects with over 980 kilometres of new roads, multi-level interchanges, an array of underpasses and ?yovers, the programme will enable free-?owing traf?c and improved journey times to meet the social and economic developments and future needs of Qatar.(END)
