Project Overview

As part of the Expressway Program, this project will provide a vital connection to Doha's fast growing Lusail City Development area, which is currently under construction. It will upgrade the existing Al Istiqlal Road from south of the Al Wahda (Arch) roundabout to north of the North Channel Crossing, and Onaiza Street.

Three large interchanges

The project includes three large interchanges and has key interfaces with the Pearl, Katara, Lusail City Development, and the future Sharq (Doha Bay) crossing. The Lusail Expressway will also cater for future light rail transit (LRT) and the Metro's Red Line North.
Associated infrastructure developments include: Storm water network with two pump stations, underground detention tank and two outfalls, wastewater, treated sewage effluent, chilled water, potable water, electrical EHV, HV, MV, & LV, Q-Tel & Vodafone telecommunication network, Doha city surveillance system and Qatar Armed Forces telecommunication networks and landscaping features.

Material Used

  • Expandacork

    Expandacork products absorb the vibrations, expansions, and contraction caused by heat in the different construction materials.
