The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’ has diverted the traffic on the industrial area road in both the directions from April 30, 2017. However, the diversion will not affect road users who need access to residential and commercial areas in Umm Al Seneem.
People travelling from Doha can access the local existing road in front of Barwa Commercial Avenue by staying on the right of the road, which will be open from Mesaimeer Interchange towards the Industrial Area.
A new road is also provided for public looking to reaching junction of the Industrial Area with East Industrial Street using the newly opened free flowing section of the Industrial Area Road. The new section will have four lanes in each direction and two new underpasses, at Umm Al Seneem Interchange (known as Karwa Interchange) and Wadi Lubara Interchange (known as Barwa Interchange).
People arriving from Industrial Area towards Mesaimeer Interchange who need to reach commercial and residential areas in Barwa Commercial Avenue can follow newly installed directional signs and turn right at Umm Al Seneem Interchange traffic signals, then take a U-turn to return to the Industrial Area Road.
The newly opened section will allow the existing road capacity to improve by increasing the number of lanes and diverting traffic. The completion of the full project is scheduled to be over in 2017.
