Three-Day Partial Closure Planned on Al Furousiya Roundabout

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Gulf Times -- Ashghal will implement a partial closure on Al Furousiya Roundabout (Equestrian R/A), for three days from Thursday evening, in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic.


During the closure until Sunday evening, traffic heading from Umm Al Jamajim Street and Al Qalaa Street to Al Furousiya Roundabout can only turn right into Al Furousiya Street, while traffic heading from Al Furousiya Street to the roundabout can continue straight on Al Furousiya Street or turn right (as shown on the map).


The closure aims to enable construction works to convert Al Furousiya Roundabout into a signal-controlled intersection (as part of Al Furousiya Street Development Project).


The project includes converting Al Furousiya and Muaither Roundabouts into signal-controlled intersections to ease traffic congestion in the area, in addition to increasing the number of lanes of Al Furousiya Street to four lanes in each direction with a service road on both sides in order to enhance traffic flow and increase the street capacity to accommodate current and future traffic requirements.
