The Corniche road from the Sheraton Roundabout to the Islamic Museum Roundabout will be closed on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 December due to rehearsals for the National Day military parade. A Ministry of Interior spokesman advised commuters to use alternative roads and to follow the traffic signs indicating the diversions.
On National Day, all roads and areas close to the military parade will be closed to traffic. Free shuttle services will be available round the clock to transfer people from parking spots to the Corniche. Parking will be available near the Central Post Office, Qatar Sports Club, Qatar Petroleum building and Souq Waqif. Seven information booths will also be set up around the Corniche.
