The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced the closure of a small part of Al Corniche Street, specifically at the Post Office interchange, from 1 pm on 25 August until the evening of the next day for maintenance works.

The closure will take place over two consecutive stages. The first stage includes closing part of the main Corniche Street from Sheraton Hotel to the Ministry of Interior. Road users will need to turn right to Al Markhiya Street to get to Lekhwair Intersection and make a U-turn to go back to Al Corniche Street.

Once completed, work on Stage Two will start, which includes closing the slip road going from Al Corniche Street into and out of Al Markhiya Street. Road users will have to stop at the interchange in front of the Post Office and turn to Al Markhiya Street and vice versa.

Ashghal is requesting all road users to abide by the speed limits and follow the road signs to ensure the safety of all motorists and pedestrians.
