Traffic change on Al Mazrooah Interchange Bridge

The Peninsula

The Public Works Authority, ‘Ashghal’, will implement a temporary traffic change on Al Mazrooah Interchange Bridge on North Road to continue the construction of a multi-level junction, as part of the New Orbital Highway and Truck Route project. 

The diversion, designed in coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic, starts on tonight till 4am on Sunday, December 10, 2017.

During the minor detour, the traffic on the bridge will be shifted onto a parallel route for a distance of 1.8 kilometers long, which incorporates just one lane in each direction in place of two lanes.

The northeast exit ramp and northwest entry ramp at Al Mazrooah Interchange connecting traffic from and to the Temporary Truck Route and Al Shamal Road will be closed, providing direct exits from the two nearby eastern and western roundabouts alike, as shown on the attached map.

The speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/ hour, while the speed limit on Al Shamal Road main carriageway remains at 80 km/ hour, Ashghal says.

The Public Works Authority will install road signs advising motorists of the closure. ‘Ashghal’ requests all road users to abide by the new speed limit and follow the road signs to ensure their safety.
