Saoud Al Tamimi stated that development projects in citizen subdivisions are of great importance because of their positive and direct impact on the lives of citizens as they allow them to build their homes in new areas where projects provide integrated infrastructure and an advanced road network that are connected to each other. on the street and main road network. These projects also provide highly efficient services in existing land areas.Eng. Saoud Al Tamimi explained that the recently completed phases cover 7,833 plots, and are part of projects that, upon completion of all phases, will serve a total of 18,870 residential plots. He added that when all work on these projects is completed, they will provide infrastructure services for these subdivisions, including an efficient and safe road network of approximately 581 km, as well as 442 km of drainage networks, 290 km of TSE networks, 590 km of surface and groundwater drainage, in addition to providing 27,475 light poles and 992 km of pedestrian and cycle paths. In the Northern Areas Projects, Ashghal provided services for a total of 5,570 residential plots in the Northern Areas, including 1,957 of the 5,592 plots within the roads and infrastructure projects in Al Ebb and Leabaib (Packages 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5), 1,437 of the 5,384 plots within the Al Kharaitiyat and Izghawa projects (packages 1, 2, 3 and 4), 648 of the 1,961 plots in the North and East of Al Kheesa (package 2), 610 of the 738 plots in Al Egda, Al Heedan and Al Khor (Package 1), 539 in the west of Semaisma Village (Package 1), 222 of 273 plots in Umm Sal Ali West, Umm Ebairiya Village, Umm Al Amad South and Bu Fessela North (Package 1), and 157 of the 633 plots in Umm Sral Mohammed (Package 1). The subdivisions served in the projects in the western areas comprise a total of 1,015 plots, including 605 of the 805 plots within the road and infrastructure projects in East Al Wajba (packages 1 and 3), and 410 plots within the Al project Mearad and Southwest of Muaither (package 2). As for the southern areas, a total of 1,248 plots were provided with infrastructure services, of which 838 out of 1,197 plots are part of the road and infrastructure projects in South Al Mashaf (packages 4 and 9), 189 out of 424 plots within the Al Wakra West project (package 2), and 221 of the 424 plots within the Al Wakra West project (package 2). of 914 plots in the west of Al Mashaf (package 9). Through these projects, the internal road network has been improved and constructed, and road safety features have been installed, including lighting posts, directional signs and pedestrian and cycle paths, in addition to parking spaces. The works also include the construction and development of infrastructure services, including drainage networks, rainwater and groundwater drainage networks, TSE networks, as well as water and electricity lines and other services. As part of the Public Works Authority’s efforts to promote Qatari factories and local products, and within the “Ta’heel” initiative launched in 2018, most project work relied on local sources to supply materials and elements . The local components accounted for about 70% of the total materials used in the projects, including drainage pipes, water, lighting poles and lamps, traffic light poles and other items previously imported from overseas countries. It is worth mentioning that the implementation of road and infrastructure projects in residential areas requires a different mechanism than main road and highway projects. This is due to the special nature of these projects, as internal road works take place in densely populated residential areas with high traffic movements, which requires the implementation of the works in phases and multiple diversions, while providing accesses and safe corridors for residents. The infrastructure lines in these areas require excavation work during limited hours of the day to avoid inconvenience to residents. Deep excavation work is also being carried out on the main roads using microtunnel techniques, so that residents do not notice that work is being done behind the barriers. The high groundwater level in the Al Furjan areas also poses a challenge that must be resolved before the necessary infrastructure is implemented. In addition, requests from service providers to provide residential areas with communications, electricity, water and other services are taken into account. Excavation works also take into account the presence of existing underground services to ensure their protection during the project period.
