Salwa Road put into service

Yüksel İnşaat completed the project that covers the reconstruction of the 6.8 km part of the Salwa Road, which connects Doha to Saudi Arabia.

As the third contract undertaken by Yüksel İnşaat in Qatar, the Doha Ex¬pressway (Package 7) Salwa Road - Phase 2 project has been completed and the substantial completion process has been initiated on 29 November 2013. The main road and the byways, which constituted the most significant part of the project, had already been delivered on 29 July 2013. Upon the completion of the additional works like the landscaping and access roads, the project has been fully completed. The project was co-signed on 13 June 2010, under the leadership of Yüksel İnşaat, who formed a 50%-50% JV with a local company, Midmac Contracting Co. WLL. The initial estimated cost of the project was QAR 1.6 billion (US$ 437.4 million). With the additional works, the final value of the project reached to QAR 1.7 billion (US$ 458 million).

In addition to the reconstruction of the Salwa Road, the project scope in¬cluded the construction of 4 underpasses and signalized intersections and level crossings on the road. Moreover, the access roads, the 3-lane byways constructed on both sides and parallel to the road, and the signalized intersections ensured a safer and freer flow for the intense traffic of the town. Next to the byways, sidelines and parking lots were constructed to serve the stores on the road. 387,832 tons of asphalting was carried out for the main road. The asphalting of the service roads totaled 17,191 tons. The entire electricity, water, sewage, drainage, purified waste water and telephone infrastructures were renewed and new installations were carried out when necessary. The project was delivered after the completion of landscaping works.
