Due to emergency maintenance work, the Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ had to close the immigration bridge in the direction from North to South, as the maintenance work will last for almost 1 month duration.
As a result, Ashghal calls all the drivers that are coming from North towards South of Doha to use the temporary traffic diversion on Al Gharafa interchange (Immigration interchange) or to use Sabah Al Ahmed Corridor or Al Jamaa Street as alternative routes.
Ashghal would like to note that road users coming from Dukhan Road towards Khalifa Street (Al Markhyia) can use Immigration Tunnel. As for Al Luqta residents that are approaching east, they can use Makkah Al Mokarama Street and Omar bin Al Khattab tunnel as an alternative of Al Gharafa interchange (Immigration interchange) to avoid the temporary traffic diversion there.
Madinat Khalifa North residents if approaching Gharafa can use the bridge which is connecting Madinat Khalifa North with Al Itihad Street to avoid the traffic Jam which may be witnessed at Al Gharafa interchange.
Public Works Authority also emphasises the safety of the structure of the bridge and confirms that the maintenance works are limited to filling works and asphalt sub-base only.
