Saoud Ali Al Tamimi, Manager of Roads Projects at the Public Works Authority, said that Ashghal has been keen on opening a number of important projects ahead of Eid Al Adha and the beginning of the new academic year 2017-2018 in order to reduce congestion and ease traffic. The new openings include Ali bin Abi Talib Street, TV Intersection, Messila Tunnel, the Expanded Jasim bin Hamad Street, and parts of the Old Traffic Roundabout that is being converted to signal-controlled intersection, as well as the two tunnels at Pearl Interchange.
