Ashghal is working to complete several other key features on the new Al Sheehaniya – Leatooriya Road, including a camel underpass and a pedestrian footbridge near Al Doosari Zoo. The pedestrian overpass is 75 percent complete, while the 38 metre-long camel underpass between Al Sheehaniya and Leatooriya is in the final stages of construction. Ashghal expects that the pedestrian footbridge and camel underpass will be complete within the next three months.
In the interests of sustainability and promoting community engagement, the Public Works Authority will also convert the existing parallel roadway between Al Sheehaniya and Leatooriya into a dedicated cycling lane and footpath. Construction of the Al Sheehaniya – Leatooriya Road, which forms part of Ashghal’s Al Sheehaniya – Leatooriya – Lijmiliya Expressway project, commenced in November 2014 and during that time, over 490 workers have been working to complete this section of the roadway.
