The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has opened a new bridge to traffic for commuters heading to Doha via the North Road Corridor.
The new bridge is located at Izghawa Interchange, as an integrated part of North Road Enhancement Project.
Izghawa Interchange and its surroundings witness large-scale reconfigurations to create better road access and approximately 80 percent of the works at the site are completed as the remaining is due to be complete by the end of this year.
The bridge serves as a key connection that would enhance traffic flow for motorists coming from Duhail area and the north side of Qatar University.
The Izghawa Interchange will also provide better access to local roads as well as alleviate traffic congestions at the north side of Doha Golf Club, West Bay, Luqtifia, Al Khor Coastal Road and the northwestern side of Lusail Development Project.
Besides, the intersection will be adding additional local access roads to serve smooth flowing traffic into Al Gharrafa, the southwestern side of the Education City, Al Kharaytiat and Umm Salal Muhammad in the northwestern side.
It is also worth noting that the contractor of the North Road enhancement project has achieved 10 million man hours without Loss Time Injury.
