HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior’s field visit aimed at learning about the progress of work in these key projects and their implementation phases which are part of the key projects implemented by the Public Works Authority (Ashghal). His Excellency was briefed on the progress of the project and what was completed so far.
Ashghal President Nasser bin Ali Al Mawlawi said that HE Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani’s visit to the project sites reflects His Excellency’s keenness on following-up on the implementation of these projects carried out by Ashghal and reflects the keenness of the state and its commitment to support the implementation of these important development projects.
The East West Corridor project, scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2017, will create strategic links with the south of the city and connect the new Orbital Highway and Truck Road to the New Hamad International Airport.
Comprising construction of approximately 22km of a new dual carriageway, the new East West Corridor roads will feature five lanes in each direction stretching from west of Barwa City, to Al Matar Street south of the Air Force Roundabout.
The project includes eight grade separated interchanges that will provide new access to key roads and residential areas such as Al Matar Street, Najma Street Extension, Barwa Access Road and new Al Wakra Bypass.
Covering infrastructure improvements in the area the project will include the upgrade and relocation of utilities, new road lighting, installation of an Intelligent Transport System and storm water drainage. The project will see the installation of 2842 meters of drainage line and over 140,000 meters of irrigation lines across the project. Interfaces with metro rail will be accommodated in the project to allow a future long distance rail corridor.
As part of the project, artscape and landscape features will beautify this area for road users, pedestrians, cyclists, and adjacent residents. New and improved pedestrian pathways and cycle paths have been planned to reduce the reliance on vehicles and improve accessibility, particularly for those living and working close to the area. As part of the development more than 6000 street lights will be installed on the East West Corridor. (QNA)
