Al-Shura In­ter­sec­tion to be closed for 12 hours

Gulf Times - - QATAR -

The Pub­lic Works Au­thor­ity (Ashghal) has an­nounced that it will im­ple­ment a tem­po­rary clo­sure of Al-Shura In­ter­sec­tion, also known as White Palace In­ter­sec­tion, on the main lanes of the four sides of the in­ter­sec­tion.

Car­ried out in co-or­di­na­tion with the Gen­eral Di­rec­torate of Traf­fic, the clo­sure will last for a to­tal of 12 hours, Ashghal has said in a state­ment.

First, the in­ter­sec­tion will be closed for six hours from this evening un­til early to­mor­row, and it will again be closed for six hours from to­mor­row evening un­til early on Wed­nes­day.

Dur­ing this pe­riod, traf­fic head­ing to Al-Shura In­ter­sec­tion from its four sides can turn right only and use the next in­ter­sec­tion, as shown on the at­tached map.

The tem­po­rary clo­sure is be­ing im­ple­mented with the aim of com­plet­ing the in­stal­la­tion of new traf­fic lights at Al-Shura In­ter­sec­tion, Ashghal has said.

This comes as part of the de­vel­op­ment works car­ried out at in­ter­sec­tions and round­abouts in var­i­ous parts of Greater Doha, which aim to en­hance the flow of traf­fic and re­duce con­ges­tion in vi­tal ar­eas, the state­ment adds.

The au­thor­ity will in­stall road signs ad­vis­ing mo­torists of the clo­sure. It has also re­quested all road users to abide by the speed limit and fol­low the road signs to en­sure their safety.
