Doha: Public Works Authority (Ashghal) announced yesterday that the south exit on Umm Lekhba (Landmark) interchange, which leads to Al Shamal Road will be closed starting from tomorrow.
Road users coming from Al Markhiya Interchange on Al Markhiya Street and heading towards Doha should continue straight on Al Markhiya Street until reaching the newly constructed U-turn as part of the traffic diversion, make a U-turn and follow the traffic signs to reach Al Shamal Road and from there to the desired destination.
Road users on Al Markhiya Street in the opposite direction, coming from Al Gharrafa interchange and heading towards Doha, can use the alternative route by following the traffic signs to reach Al Shamal Road and from there to their desired destination. This closure is required to enable the construction works of multiple bridges and overpasses to reduce the traffic congestion on Al Shamal Road and Umm Lekhba Interchange.
Ashghal will install road signs providing motorists with advance notice of the new road layout.
