Bani Hajer Interchange Benefits
Having a vital location, the Public Works Authority converted Bani Hajer Roundabout into a three-level interchange that created free movement to approximately 1500 vehicles per hour. As a result, the junction has become a key access point for three major arteries of Khalifa Avenue, Dukhan Road, and Al Rayyan Road along with the populated areas around.
Ashghal had opened sections of Bani Hajer Interchange, involving an underpass, which links Bani Hajer with Al Rayyan and a 1.3 km Link Bridge between Al Rayyan and Dukhan.
Ashghal also opened two right ramps, one receives travellers coming from Doha to Bani Hajer via Khalifa Avenue and the other leads travellers coming from Bani Hajer to Dukhan via Al Shahama Street.
Two more loops connecting with Bani Hajer Underpass were opened to link traffic coming from Dukhan to Bani Hajer and from Bani Hajer to Doha in addition to a right turn to exit commuters coming from Al Rayyan Road to Khalifa Avenue towards Doha.
