Brief Description: Phase 1 of the Dry Dock Highway Extension Project will provide additional entrances to Northern Muharraq’s villages; namely Qalali, Samaheej and Al Dair. Work was completed in July 2012. The project aims to reduce traffic congestion on the internal roads of the nearby villages and Rayya Avenue (previously Arados Avenue). Work extended from the Dry Dock Highway Interchange with Sh. Khalifa Bin Salman Causeway, where the Dry Dock Highway slope towards the north was expanded to 3 lanes on each direction. The highway was also expanded from the end of part 1 until the entrance to Amwaj Islands; improving Amwaj/Galali Interchange. The third part of the project comprised revamp works spanning Amwaj/Galali Interchange and Diyyar Al Muharraq, in addition to the implementation of safety barriers and constructing the entrance to Samaheej.
