Al Jaber Group wins a contract to develop five new interchanges in Industrial Area in Qatar
Doha, 27 May 2012 - Al Jaber Transport & General Contracting LLC won a contract to develop the Industrial Road in Qatar as part of the ambitious upgrading exercise costing QR2.34bn to be carried out on the more than 8-km long Doha-Industrial Road.Al Jaber Transport & General Contracting LLC will undertake the work with Parson International as the consultants.

Under Ashghal’s Expressway programme, a new dual carriageway would be laid between Eastern Industrial Road interchange and the existing Al Woqod petrol station roundabout. In addition, approximately 2kms of dual carriageway would be laid on F-Ring Road between Al Jazeera intersection to the proposed interchange at the existing Woqod roundabout.

The new development would also see the building of four multi- level interchanges along the Industrial Area road and another multi-level interchange along F-Ring road. One of the major attractions of the new project is a directional tunnel from the Industrial Road to the newly opened Barwa City.

The new construction includes dual four-lane traffic road and service roads in the Industrial Area, dual three-lane road with service roads in Eastern Industrial Street, dual three-lane 1.8km bridge across the Industrial Road and a wholesale market street and access road behind the Barwa Commercial Avenue under construction. The project has provisions for pedestrians and also has dedicated cycleways to ensure safety for all types of travelers.

Also among the new works to be undertaken as part of the project are the three-level Eastern Industrial Area Street interchange, Karwa interchange, Barwa City interchange, Woqod interchange and the Al Jazeera interchange on the F-Ring road.

The three-level Eastern Industrial interchange includes an underpass and traffic signal controlled turning movements at the intersection. The two-level interchanges at the intersections at Karwa roundabout, the road to Barwa City and Al Jazeera intersection, also have similar features.

The Barwa tunnel project includes a two-lane level for left turn traffic movement from the Industrial Area to the Barwa City. The major developments to come up near the proposed Woqod interchange include an underpass, traffic signal-controlled movement and a flyover on F-Ring road.
