The Doha Central Development and Beautification Project will improve water drainage, foul sewer and electricity networks in Doha while giving a facelift to the city. The development works are also expected to remarkably improve the traffic flow in Doha by ensuring better connectivity between roads and streets. The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) is carrying out multiple works as part of the three phases of the project in various parts of Doha.
The project features a host of infrastructure works. The first package features the development of Abdullah Bin Thani Street, one of the main streets in the Doha Central region. It includes the development of Al Dostour, Al Sakhama, Ras Brouq, Dar Al Kutub, Bu Hasaya, Al Ghous and Ras Usheirej streets. Lighting poles, street furniture and traffic signals for vehicles and pedestrians will be installed and pedestrian crossings and shared paths for pedestrians and cyclists set up. The aim is also to reduce traffic volume by promoting pedestrian movement besides increasing tree plantation and landscaping.
During the second phase, 8.5km of surface water drainage network, 4.7km of foul sewer network and 6.8km of electricity network are to be developed while installing 329 decorative lighting poles and planting about 1,400 trees along with developing 10,000sqm of green areas. These are in addition to developing a 22.6km long pedestrian and cycling path within Doha city.
The second phase of the project covers the areas surrounding the National Museum of Qatar and opposite to the Museum of Islamic Art while developing and beautifying main streets and internal neighbourhoods in addition to the infrastructure development works.
The third phase features the development of 10.2km of surface water drainage network, 11.2km of foul sewer drainage network, 4.7km of electricity network, installing 515 decorative lighting poles, planting about 3,250 trees, development of about 30,000sqm of green areas and construction of 35.3km pedestrian and cycling paths. Besides, all the main streets will be covered with granite.
Ashghal has said that the project meets the needs of Doha’s residents and visitors while creating memorable experiences by linking people to places and destinations through a convenient, safe and accessible public realm. All the three phases, Ashghal has informed, will be completed by the first quarter of 2022.
