The existing U-turn on Ashghal will be shut down by Ashghal in order to complete the construction of an underpass on the Dukhan Highway East project. The road change was designed in consultation with the General Directorate of Traffic.
The traffic change will come in to force from Saturday 13 May 2017 and is expected to be same until February 2018. People travelling westbound on Dukhan Highway who need to return to Doha will need to continue straight to the Amiri Guard Roundabout to perform a U-turn. There will be no other changes implemented on Dukhan Highway as part of this diversion.
The road users are requested to keep their speed below 50 kph and follow newly implemented traffic road signs to ensure safety.
