New diversions up as Ashghal works on overhauling Al Rayyan Road

Starting tomorrow (March 18), part of Jassim bin Hamad Street in Al Messilah will be closed for six months, Qatar’s public works authority Ashghal has said.

A 380m section of the southbound carriageway of the road, which runs from Al Rayyan Road up past Al Rayyan Village residential compound, will be shut to allow the completion of a tunnel that runs underneath Al Rayyan Road.

Drivers in the area should leave some extra time for the diversions that will be in place for the duration of the works, which are expected to be completed by mid-September.

Traffic heading south onto Al Rayyan Road will need to make a u-turn at the roundabout on Jassim bin Hamad St., then turn right onto Al Rashid St. and right again to Al Yamama St.
