The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced the completion of construction of roads that connect Al Shamal Road with the truck parking area located near the Industrial Area in Al Shamal City. The truck parking roads are considered a vital part of phase one of Ashghal’s Roads and Infrastructure Development Project in Al Shamal, implemented by Ashghal.

Eng. Ali Ashkanani, Head of North Areas Section of the Roads Projects Department in Ashghal, said that the authority completed the construction of four dual carriageway roads with a total length of 2.2 kilometres, which will provide the truck drivers with an easy access from the truck parking area in Al Shamal City into Al Shamal road, leading to Doha City and other parts of the country, and vice versa.

Eng. Ali Ashkanani noted that the four roads include two lanes in each direction separated be a median, in addition to three roundabouts that will regulate the movement of the trucks. The roads are also provided with street lighting, traffic signs, and road marking in order to enhance traffic safety in the area. Eng. Ashkanani added that these roads were constructed in accordance with the highest standards and specifications, and were designed to withstand large truck loads. It’s worth mentioning that phase one of the Roads and Infrastructure Development Project in Al Shamal includes a wide range of rehabilitation works for the existing local roads to transform them to developed roads that meet the population growth in Al Shamal. The project also includes building developed roads and a new sewage network needed in the area to serve about 3600 business and residential buildings.
