The project

Our work on the extension consisted of:

-Upgrading the Abdul Kareem Al Khattabi Street, with all associated intersections, to motorway standards

-Redesigning the Fourth Ring Road/Fahaheel Expressway interchange configuration, by canceling bridge traffic lights and introducing free movement ramps to relieve congestion

-Building pedestrian bridges

-Modifying the Fifth Ring Road/Airport Road interchange from diamond shape with traffic signals to full cloverleaf configuration, thereby increasing the junction capacity of a section of the Airport Road between the Fifth and Sixth Ring Roads.
