May 09, 2020

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) announced the opening of 0.6 km of Al Nasr Street and 1.8 km of Al Mirqab Al Jadeed Street in addition to 4 signalised intersections to traffic, as part of the ‘Improvement of Main Roads in Al Nasr Area’ project.
 

Rashed Al Zeyara, Project Engineer in the Roads Projects Department, pointed out the importance of Al Mirqab Al Jadeed Street and its strategic location in the heart of Fereej Al Nasr Area linking Suhaim Bin Hamad Street (C-Ring Road) and Doha Expressway, two of the most vital roads in Doha and serving a large number of daily commuters. 

He also highlighted the role played by Al Mirqab Al Jadeed Street and the equally important Al Nasr Street in accommodating the increasing traffic flow in the area, as both streets are located amidst densely-populated residential areas and cater to several commercial centres and shops as well as health and educational facilities and public amenities. 

 

“Ashghal was keen to open these streets and intersections as they will significantly enhance the traffic flow in the area and improve the road network safety level in addition to facilitating access to many residential areas with heavy traffic flow such as Al Mirqab Area, Fereej Al Nasr Area, Fereej Bin Mahmoud Area and Al Sadd Area,” he said.

The four newly opened signalised intersections are:
1. The intersection of Al Mirqab Al Jadeed Street with Mohammed Bin Qasim Street,
2. The intersection of Mohammed Bin Qasim Street with Al Kinana Street
3. The intersection of Othman Bin Talha Street with Mohammed Bin Qasim Street
4. The intersection of Al Mirqab Al Jadeed Street with Suhaim Bin Hamad Street (C-Ring Road)
