A new permanent road with two flyovers stretching along 1.6km with two lanes in each direction along Al Wukair Road will be open to public from Friday. The new road is a part of the Al Wakrah Bypass project.
Traffic heading westbound towards Al Wukair will be shifted on Friday before shifting eastbound traffic towards Al Wakra on Sunday.
The junction connecting Al Sakhama Road to Al Wukair Road will be permanently closed from Sunday to facilitate the opening. The closure means that the residents of nearby Ezdan villages 28, 36 and 37 have to follow diversion signs and access Al Wukair Road via Al Wukair roundabout.
The remaining works on Al Wakra Bypass project is likely to be completed by next month. Once it is complete, it will benefit the motorists travelling from Al Wakra and areas further south of Qatar by providing direct access to the G Ring Road connecting to the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route and the F Ring Road towards Hamad International Airport and Doha.
