The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, has announced the implementation of a temporary diversion on Salwa Road eastbound carriageway between Rawdat Rashed Interchange (Exit 29) and Mesaieed Interchange (Exit 24) for a distance of 2.2 kilometers to allow the installation of gantries at Mesaieed Interchange.

The proposed diversion has been designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, and will remain in place for a period of four days, starting on Thursday, 22 November until Sunday, 25 November. As shown on the attached map, traffic heading eastbound on Salwa Road towards Doha will be diverted to the westbound carriageway after Rawdat Rashed Interchange and will return to normal flow before reaching Mesaieed Interchange. During this diversion, the number of lanes will be reduced from four lanes to two lanes in order to accommodate traffic movement in both directions.

During this traffic change, the right turn exit at Mesaieed Interchange will be temporarily closed; road users heading from Bu Samra towards Mesaieed will follow the signs and use the three loops to exit Mesaieed Interchange towards Mesaieed. The temporary realignment of Salwa Road will prevent traffic access from Salwa Service Road to Salwa Road; Road users will be directed to Rawdat Rashed Interchange through which they can get onto Salwa Road. The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. ‘Ashghal’ requests all road users to abide by the speed limit, which remains at 80 kph for this section of Salwa Road, and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
