The extension of Najma Street that connects F-Ring Road with Al Wakra Main Road
Doha – The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) opened to the public the Najma Street Extension and a new bridge crossing the East Corridor along the Najma Street on Sunday.
These two are part of the East Corridor project currently being implemented by Ashghal under its Expressway Programme.
Najma Street Extension will connect the F-Ring Road to Al Wakra Main Road, improving connectivity between Al Thumama and the Old Airport area to the south of Qatar.
Road users can now travel to and from central Doha and Al Wakra without the need to access Al Matar Street or Ras Abu Aboud Road, in addition to benefiting from reduced congestion and shorter transit times in the south of Doha. The 2.4 km-long Najma Street Extension includes three lanes in each direction.
The new bridge is more than 117 metres long and over 10 metres high. It is located at the intersection between East-West Corridor and Najma Street Extension.
The speed limit will be 80 kph along the Extension of Najma Street.
Najma Street Bridge is part of the East Corridor project which is the Eastern section of the East-West Corridor, one of the most prominent projects implemented by Ashghal under its Expressway Programme.
