Qatar to start work on 4th phase of C-Ring Road
Doha, August 14, 2014
Ashghal, the public works authority of Qatar, will begin work on the fourth phase of road development works on C-Ring Road in Doha tomorrow (August 15), a report said.
The fourth phase, when completed, will result in the conversion of roundabouts to signal-controlled intersections for improved traffic flow and reduced congestion, added the report in The Peninsula.
A signalised pedestrian crossing will be set up for all four crossings at each of the new intersections, according to the report.
Work on the fourth phase is being started earlier than planned to prevent an overlap between work on the C-Ring Road and work on a new expressway project, the report added.
Two lanes, as well as temporary alternative accesses, will remain open to traffic in both directions throughout the construction period.
Work on the fourth phase is expected to last nearly five months, and will include adding a fourth lane, in addition to maintaining and repaving the existing three lanes.
Work on C-Ring Road will take about two and a half months, after which, work will commence on the ‘feeder’ roads leading from C-Ring Road, the report highlighted.
