The Dukhan Highway Central project involved the construction of a 15km-long new dual four-lane expressway running from the current Wajbah Interchange to 1km east of the Al Shahania, Doha, Qatar. The new highway with hard shoulders and grade-separated interchanges replaces the existing two-lane dual expressway and aims to improve the traffic flow between Doha and the west of Qatar. Construction of the QR1.4bn ($380m) Dukhan Highway Central project started in April 2011. A 9km stretch of the Dukhan Highway Central between Sheehaniya interchange and the Al Rayyan roundabout was opened for the public in July 2014. The entire 15km stretch was opened in May 2017. It forms an important part of the Doha Expressway network. The project was developed by Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal). The Dukhan Highway Central is part of the Dukhan Highway Project, which involved the construction of 66km of new dual four-lane highway stretching from the existing Thani bin Jassim junction in the west of Doha to the existing Zirkreet interchange near the Dukhan industrial area. The project was initiated under Ashghal’s Expressway Programme, a massive road modernisation programme to deliver a modern highway network in Qatar covering a route length of 980km and involving more than 240 intersections by 2020.
Contribution for the development of the project not only fits ACO’s worldwide experience to support the architecture of the infrastructure with utmost requirements for aesthetics and functionality. We also found inspiration in the intersection between the highway's concept to foster solutions to the challenges that future cities face and our company’s dedication to the urban environment of tomorrow.
