WSP provided design services on the project, as well as the preparation of contract documents and tender review. In association with a local partner, WSP delivered construction supervision services on the development of a complex 7-kilometer stretch of highway surrounding the Jahra Gate intersection. Traffic maintenance is a key aspect of the work since the area is densely populated and the roadway passes new high-rise properties, as well as historic buildings.
WSP has developed four major detours to manage traffic flow, and maintains an extensive public awareness campaign to provide information for drivers during the construction.
Other project elements included storm water drainage, protection and relocation of existing utilities and environmental protection.
