Doha: Ashghal and the Traffic Department worked together to open Al Oyoun Street to traffic so that Al Shamal Road and Thani Bi Jassim could be connected.
The street will serve as an alternate route to Al Gharrafa. This would relieve traffic on Al Shamal Road by improving access to surrounding commercial centres and stores such as Souq Al Gharrafa.
In addition, Ashghal constructed a new signal intersection to facilitate traffic flow from Al Hateem St, Al Gharrafa Rd, Izghawa, and Gharrafat Al Rayyan. Al Shamal Road is bypassed at this intersection.
More than 4,388 vehicles per hour can pass via Al Oyoun Street, which is 1.3 kilometres long and has two lanes in each direction.
Al Oyoun Street is connected to Ashghal’s New Al Hateem Street. This would give an alternate route connecting Izghawa and Al Gharrafa to the Sabah Al Ahmad Corridor and Umm Lekhba Interchange on Al Shamal Road.
