Commuters urged to avoid area surrounding Al Wakrah Stadium after 6:30pm today

Under continued efforts before and during the Amir Cup, the Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has urged road users to avoid the area surrounding Al Wakrah Stadium (in case of non-attendance) from 6:30pm until 2am on the opening day (today) due to planning for road closures, traffic diversions and alternative routes during the event to facilitate the movement of individuals and vehicles. 

In coordination with the General Directorate of Traffic and Qatar Football Association (QFA) and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SCDL), Ashghal contributes to easing traffic management on the roads surrounding the stadium through a number of directional signs that lead people to the parking plots with its different categories, in addition to mobile overhead gantry with supplementary signs to lead the road users.


An integrated team has been established by the Roads Operation and Maintenance Department at Ashghal since February 2019 to survey, study and test all available road assets such as asphalt condition, road signs, safety barriers, drainage assets, street lighting, pedestrian crossings, tunnels, traffic signs, etc., to ensure the readiness of these assets, in cooperation with all partners.

It was agreed on the necessary operational plans, the development of immediate emergency response plans, and prepare the necessary teams and equipment to ensure the success of the event, in addition to the study of all the road projects being implemented around the stadium and ensure its readiness during the event.
