Salwa Road what were they thinking???
Ok starting to realise the traffic in Doha will never improve with the road planners doing what they are. A trip up Salwa road today and i discovered at what used to be a round-about is now a huge junction with traffic lights!?
When will that start thinking proactivly about the roads here?
I havent been here to long but i visited dubai a few times and u can drive across most of town without having to stop at traffic lights.
Doha needs to invest in proper wide roads with flyovers/unders at evety major intersection. Intersections with traffic lights just dont work with the volumes of traffic this city has.
I'd love to know who is spending these hundreds of millions of riyals in new roads that cant even cope with ramadan traffic never mind regular traffic.
I'd advise against any travel on salwa once these new intersections start opening up as they are the wrong choice for such a busy road.
