New interchanges underway on Salwa Road

As a part of major expansion of Salwa road, one of the most important commercial avenues in Qatar, four busy roundabouts will be converted into interchanges shortly.

The Central Market, Qatar Decor, Ain Khaled, and Aziziya roundabouts located on the Salwa road will shortly be converted into interchages as a part of the project. The highway will have four lanes on each side. The project will also offer subways, weighbridges and tunnels to ease traffic flow on the highway.

The project will also see construction of seage networks, rain water disposal system, green areas, and other such amenities. The expansion will stretch till 700 meter east of Industrial Area Interchange, and 300 meters before the Al Asiri Interchange.

The project has been divided into four phases. The first include construction of service roads, offering accessibility to shops and parking area for vehicles. The second and third phases include construction of more service roads, traffic diversions and parking areas for shops. The fourth and final phase will include work on the four-lane highway and tunnels, construction of intersections and installation of traffic lights.

The shops lined-up on either sides of the highway are now badly hit owing to the construction works happening in the area. However, 25 percent of the project is now complete, and the rest of the QR592mn project is scheduled for completion by next year-end.
