Ashghal (Public Works Authority) has announced a temporary closure of Armeilla Street in both directions between Armeilla and Guest Palace roundabouts, starting from Saturday 12 April to Thursday 17 April 2014.

The closure will allow Ashghal to widen the street into three lanes in each direction. In addition, Ashghal plans to widen the Guest Palace roundabout to meet current traffic needs. According to the authority, as part of this closure, lampposts will be replaced and maintenance work will be done on the interlock on both sides of the road to accommodate to pedestrians.

Travellers coming from Al Bidaa Street towards Guest Palace roundabout can head north towards Mohammed bin Thani Street and turn left at the Civil Defence roundabout and go left onto Onaiza Street. Road users coming from Onaiza Street towards Armeilla roundabout can head towards the Civil Defence roundabout and turn right onto  Mohammed bin Thani Street to take a right towards Al Bidaa.

This closure is part of a series of development projects undertaken by Ashghal to increase the capacity of roads and support the traffic flow in the area. All road signs will be installed to direct road users to the alternative roads.
