The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ announced that a traffic diversion will be put in place at the Leabaib Roundabout as part of its continuous efforts to develop the roads in the area surrounding Al Duhail military camp. The diversion will be implemented to convert the roundabout into a signal-controlled intersection.

Two lanes will remain open to traffic in both directions throughout the diversion period which comprises two phases:

Phase 1 starts on Thursday 20 August 2015 at midnight until Saturday evening 22 August 2015:

  • As shown in the attached map, the existing roundabout will become wider. Vehicles coming from Al Duhail South Street and Al Tarfa Street will be able to pass though the roundabout in all directions.
  • Vehicles coming from the North side of the Arab League Street (from the direction of the previously known Radar Roundabout) will not be able to go through the roundabout and instead must make a right turn at the Leabaib Roundabout onto Al Duhail South Street, make a U-turn at the next roundabout and return to Leabaib Roundabout to be able to get to Arab League Street.
  • Vehicles driving towards the roundabout from the southern side of Arab League Street must make a right turn at Leabaib Roundabout onto Al Tarfa Street, then make a U-turn at the traffic signal in front of Qatar University's female campus and turn right once more near the Leabaib Roundabout to return to Arab League Street.

Temporary diversion on Leabaib 2 [].jpgPhase 2 starts on Saturday 22 August 2015 for a period of 4 months:

  • Traffic will be able to go through the Leabaib Roundabout from the Arab League Street in both directions (north and south) following the completion of asphalt works in the areas surrounding the roundabout at the previous diversion location (highlighted in blue in the attached map). This will allow traffic to flow through the Leabaib Roundabout in all directions.

Ashghal apologises for any inconvenience and urges all road users to abide by speed limits and traffic signs to ensure their safety.
