The road change will be implemented with the consultation of the General Directorate of Traffic in the north of the Dukhan Highway-New Orbital Highway interchange.
The diversion requires Ashghal to close a temporary access route from the temporary truck route to the Mall of Qatar, it is needed to construct a multi-level junction that includes a permanent ramp bridge.
The main access points into the Mall of Qatar will operate as usual. As shown on the map, road users travelling south on the Temporary Truck Route from Lusail who need to access the Mall of Qatar are advised to continue straight over the bridge over Dukhan Highway, turn left on the first roundabout and travel right to the service road towards Al Rufaa Street.
Motorists should turn left on the roundabout located in south of Al Jahhaniya Interchange and continue north and take an U-turn on the roundabout on Al Rufaa Street before turning right towards the Mall of Qatar.
There will be no decrease in the number of lanes due to diversion. Road signs will be installed to inform motorists well in advance about the new road layout.
