|Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has opened the first phase of the C-Ring Road project.|
Ashghal completed the first phase of the C-Ring Road on schedule meaning road users will now benefit from an additional lane stretching from Umm Ghuwailina roundabout (also known as the VIP roundabout) to midway between Najma and Mansoura intersections.
This part of the C-Ring Road was widened from three lanes to four in each direction.
The opening of this phase of the project is considered to be an important step towards enhancing the capacity of C-Ring Road which experiences high densities of traffic.
The Umm Ghuwailina roundabout has been removed and converted to an intersection, and additional lanes to turn right and left were added in order to control and facilitate the traffic flow.
The pavement will be completed soon, and the landscaping and planting in the adjacent areas will continue as well without disturbing the traffic flow.
Due to the importance of the C-Ring Road, the construction works on the project have been scaled up in order to complete this phase with the re-opening of schools. Ashghal has deployed approximately 580 workers, supervisors, engineers and dozens of construction equipment.
