(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The Public Works Authority - Ashghal - will soon start work on converting Al Markhiya and Dahl Al Hamam roundabouts to signal-controlled intersections.

Work is expected to begin this week or the next and be completed by October. Located in a strategic area of Doha, the junctions connect several main roads such as Al Markhiya, the Arab League, Jassim Bin Hamad and Khalifa streets. To minimise traffic disruptions, two lanes will be opened to traffic in each direction during work and temporary access provided for shops and residences, Ashghal said yesterday.

The project will involve converting Dahl Al Hamam Roundabout, with three lanes in each direction on Al Markhiya and Arab League streets.

Covering a stretch of 400-metre from the centre of the intersection, the project will ease traffic by providing three additional lanes turning left and a side lane to turn rht at each signal. Pedestrian crossings will be created to ensure safety of road users. Converting Al Markhiya Roundabout will involve four lanes in each direction on Khalifa Street, in addition to three lanes to turn left and one to turn right. Widening of roads will be done by taking parts of the median to provide enough space for the new signals and their utilities.

The project will involve works in the following areas: 600m area from Al Markhiya Roundabout towards TV Roundabout; over 1000m area from Al Markhiya Roundabout towards Al Gharrafa Roundabout, over 300m area from Al Markhiya Roundabout to Jassim Bin Hamad Street, over 300m from Al Markhiya Roundabout to Arab League street. As part of the project, a rain water drainage network will be set up and some existing utilities enhanced and diverted. Work on both roundabouts will be carried out round the clock to finish the project on schedule.
