The interchange will improve traffic in the area, as it provides a free traffic flow to 28,000 vehicles per hour.The new road extends 2.4 km from the new interchange on the Al Khor Road to the central part of Lusail City, which helps access Lusail City districts namely, Fox Hills, Lusail Plaza, Al Kharaej, Golf District, and the Qetaifan Islands.The road corridor includes tunnels and underpass with a length of 260 metres along with Walkways and Bike Lanes of 4.2 km as well as a 5-km storm water drainage. This is in addition to artwork along the road for a distance of 850 metres.Yousef al Emadi, Projects Affairs Director, said Ashghal seeks to provide alternative and unconventional solutions for project management in the face of coronavirus.
