New traffic lanes open as interchanges are revamped

  • Bahrain News

NEW traffic lanes will be opened as changes are implemented to the Alba and Nuwaidrat interchanges.

Starting today traffic will be allowed on one flyover from each of the interchanges.

Traffic from Manama heading west to the Alba roundabout will be allowed to continue without interruption over the Nuwaidrat flyover which will also allow traffic from Riffa to Sitra and Manama.

The other flyover in the Alba interchange will connect Shaikh Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah Highway to King Hamad Highway with no stops.



However, some lanes at the Alba roundabout will be temporarily closed with detours through traffic lights until work is finished on the middle flyover which will accommodate traffic between King Hamad Highway and Estiqlal Highway.

The GDN reported last month the BD46.8 million project is expected to be fully operational by the end of this year.

However, the Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry said
yesterday it would take nine more months.

The project includes the transformation of the current Alba roundabout into a three-level intersection consisting of a traffic light-operated land intersection.

It will also include a three-lane flyover heading in two directions, transporting traffic between King Hamad Highway and Estiqlal Highway, along with a two-way flyover going over the first one to connect Shaikh Jaber Al Ahmad Al Sabah Highway to King Hamad Highway.



The project also includes the transformation of the Nuwaidrat roundabout into a two-level intersection, one with traffic light signals and the other being a three-lane flyover. 

Yesterday’s statement said construction of the flyover in Nuwaidrat was 100 per cent completed and that work was underway on the retaining walls for the western and the eastern sides of the flyover.
