Financial Tribune, 14 November 2017

Qatar's Public Works Authority (Ashghal) said it has started work on a new project to upgrade link roads to Al Bayt Stadium, one of the venues for the Fifa World Cup 2022 in Al Khor region of capital Doha.
The project involves the construction of 5.3 km of roads, with three lanes in each direction, all leading to four sides of the stadium.
These roads will facilitate access to bus stations and car parking around the stadium, and will also provide multiple entrances to the Sports Complex where the stadium is located, said a statement from Ashghal.
These roads will also provide two links to the south and east of Al-Khor Expressway which is currently under construction, and a link to Al-Egda Street, which is located to the north of the stadium.
The new roads will feature an 8.55m-wide pedestrian path and cycle path, in addition to landscaping and pavement works that will also be carried out at the surrounding roads, it added.
In addition, a 7.3-km section of Al Egda Street will be upgraded to include three lanes in each direction, with a 3m-wide pedestrian path provided on each side of the street, starting from the roundabout at the entrance of Al Khor City until reaching the northwest side of Al Bayt stadium, said the statement from Ashghal.
It will also be connected with Al Khor Expressway, which is considered the main road leading to the stadium, it added.
Ashghal said eight signal-controlled intersections will be constructed as part of the project, in addition to four signal-controlled intersections at Al Khor Expressway. Also, two junctions will be set up only for traffic heading to and from the roads surrounding the stadium.
Additionally, the project includes the construction of a 2.2 km long gravity sewer network, a separate surface water drainage network, and an irrigation network bringing treated wastewater to and around the Stadium from the TSE network located near Al-Khor Corniche, it added.
Meanwhile Ashghal authorities said they have begun work on three key infrastructure development projects in new residential areas in the country.
The focus will be mainly on road works and drainage networks in the new residential areas of Al Nasiriyah, Al Froosh and Al Kharaitiyat, and Rawdat Egdaim and Ezghawa.
As part of the project, suitable access and exit points will be provided to these new residential plots in addition to service utilities such as electricity, water and street lighting, said the officials.
It comes as a part of Ashghal’s plan to develop roads and infrastructure for 10,400 residential plots across the country within the next three years, they added.
