Temporary Road Realignment on Dukhan Highway – Central
As part of its work on Dukhan Highway – Central, and to complete the road works on the new interchange near Al Rayyan Club on Dukhan Road (known as Rawdat Rashed Interchange), the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) will realign the access to and from Celebration Road from Dukhan Highway, starting on Wednesday 12 November 2014.
As part of the Expressway Programme, a new highway will be constructed with the mainline road starting west side of the existing Wajbah Interchange and concluding 1 km east of the town of Shahaniya. The project comprises 15 km of eight lane (four lanes in each direction) dual carriageway with hard shoulders and grade-separated interchanges to replace the existing two-lane dual carriageway. Local traffic movement is catered for by a single service road along both sides of the main carriageway and a two-way cycleway on the northern side. The upgrade of Celebration Road and Military Road is also part of this project.
Three new interchanges will be constructed; New Wajbah Interchange which will provide access to the Wajbah Palace, Rawdat Rashed Interchange which will provide access to Amiri Army Camp and Celebration Road and Duhailiyath Army Camp which will provide access to the Duhailiyath Army Camp.
