Ashghal has announced that it will carry out a minor traffic change under Al Mazrooah Interchange, on the North Road carriageway, from Friday.

The six month-long diversion will be installed to enable the construction of a multi-level interchange on the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route project.

As such, road users travelling south from Al Shamal towards Doha will be shifted onto the northbound carriageway for 1km before returning to the normal road alignment.


As a matter of fact, the new multi-level interchange will be opened for public use this year , which will increase the existing road capacity from three lanes to five in each direction.

It will also simultaneously enhance travel efficiency to Al Shamal, Al Ruwais, Lusail and Salwa Road, the statement notes. 

The detour has been designed in collaboration with the General Directorate of Traffic.
