Ashghal opened the Tilted Intersection to traffic on Friday

By, 2019-10-05



The Public Works Authority in Qatar ‘Ashghal’ announced the opening of the Tilted Intersection on Friday 4 October 2019 to traffic, as part of Khalifa Avenue project, in coordination with General Directorate of Traffic.


The Tilted Intersection will include a signalized roundabout, which is a different design from the usual roundabouts. The new design of the roundabout will have Khalifa Avenue main free flow traffic pass through it, similar to Gharrafat Al Rayyan Interchange to facilitate the traffic and to serve as a link between Doha, Dukhan, Al Gharrafa and Al Rayyan.


The new intersection will facilitate the access to several vital facilities in the area such as Sidra Medical, Qatar National Convention Center, Qatar Foundation and Education City.




Moreover, the number of lanes at the new intersection has been increased, with three main lanes in each direction and two service lanes to accommodate approximately 8,500 vehicles.


Ashghal also opened in September a 2.7 kilometer tunnel at the Tilted Intersection, which will significantly reduce traffic congestion and = travel time for road users heading to Al Luqta, Huwar Street, Al Gharafa Street and Khalifa Avenue.


Directions of Tilted Intersection


Road users on Al Luqta Street will have to use the main road passing through the roundabout to go to Dukhan and vice versa. As for the road users on Al Luqta Street, heading north towards Al Gharrafa or South towards Al Rayyan, will have to use the service lanes, take the roundabout and follow the signs to reach their destinations.


It is important to note that Ashghal has completed 92% of construction works on Khalifa Avenue Project, which is scheduled to be completed in Q3 2020. Upon completion, the project will deliver approximately 11.6 km of dual carriageway with four lanes in each direction besides seven major interchanges, service roads along the carriageway, in addition to cycle, pedestrian and camel paths which will be on the south side of Al Luqta Street.
