TradeArabia News Service, 8 August 2018

Qatar's Public Works Authority (Ashghal) said construction was progressing as per schedule on its ambitious Khalifa Avenue Project with nearly 70 per cent of the work already completed.
 
Khalifa Avenue project runs from the Al Wajbah Palace Interchange (west) to the Tilted Interchange (east) and along Al Gharrafa Road from Al Rayyan Street (south) to Thani bin Jassim Street (north).
 
The scope of work includes the construction of 11.6 km of dual carriageway with four lanes in each direction replacing a three-lane way besides seven major free-flowing interchanges, service roads, and auxiliary lanes along sections of the road.
 
The entire project is due for completion by the first quarter of 2020, said a statement from Ashghal.
 
A new flyover was opened recently on Bani Hajer Interchange as part of the Khalifa Avenue project to ensure free flow of incoming traffic from capital Doha towards Al Rayyan Road.
 
The 1.15-km-long overpass comprises two lanes that can accommodate 1,500 vehicles per hour, said the statement.
 
The flyover will largely ensure less transit time and create better traffic flow since road users on Khalifa Avenue can have a direct access to Al Rayyan Road, avoiding the diversions that existed in the area, it added.
 
Speaking at the opening, Abdullah Qassim, the project engineer at Ashghal's Highway Department, said the new flyover comes after consecutive openings of Bani Hajer Interchange and is part of several openings that happened on Khalifa Avenue project.
 
“Khalifa Avenue is a key connection, and the new bridge will enhance traffic mobility in the congested and populous area there as well as serve various vital businesses and facilities like Qatar Foundation’s Education City where thousands of students head for diverse colleges,” he added.
