Doha F-Ring Road open to traffic.
Ashghal has announced the opening of the F-Ring Road to traffic. The F-Ring Road is meant to improve the traffic flow and reduce congestion between Al Thumama Area and its surroundings and the Airport Street.
Currently, works on some service roads and cycle pathways, as well as landscaping works, are in progress causing no hindrance to the traffic.
The F-Ring Road is a 7.2 kilometer eight-lane carriageway, with four lanes in each direction, in addition to a two-lane service road on both sides of the main road. There are pedestrian and cycle paths. The project also involved the construction of two signal-controlled two-level interchanges with Najma and Airport Streets.
The construction of infrastructure facilities, such as treated effluent sewerage system, protecting the existing gas and oil pipelines, developing a new storm water drainage system, as well as water, electricity, communication, and street lighting networks were carried out as part of the project.
Road users will now benefit from shorter journey times and the free traffic flow created by the two level interchanges. According to BNC reports, the project was executed by a number of contractors and consultants which include Consolidated Contractor Company and Teyseer Contracting Company Joint Venture, with KEO International Consultants Company as the supervision consultant of the project.
