TIN news:   Qatar public works authority Ashghal has started work on the first two phases of the QAR4.5bn ($1.23bn) Al Rayyan expressway project.
 
The project is part of Ashghal's Expressway Programme and is expected to improve traffic flow in the region.
 
Phase I includes the construction of additional interchanges and roads, including a 2.9km stretch from west of Khalid bin Abdullah al-Attiyah roundabout to the east of Bani Hajer roundabout. This phase is set to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2016.
"The project is expected to improve traffic flow in the region."
 
Phase II sees the construction of six main junctions, as well as a 5.3km-long road from between the Sports and Khalid bin Abdullah Al-Attiyah roundabouts. This phase is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2017.
 
The construction work will include microtunnelling, treated sewage networks and upgrades to electrical and telecommunication networks.
 
In April, Ashghal opened Jasim Bin Mohammed Street and two lanes of Al Rayyan road to traffic, as part of the Al Rayyan upgrade project.
