The Industrial Interchange project is part of the expressway development program of Ashghal (Public Works Authority of Qatar), and aims to enhance the traffic flow on Salwa Road for commuters heading to the Industrial Area and the surrounding areas such as Ain Khaled, Al Murrah, New Fereej Al Ghanim, Muaither, Al Sailiya, Me-baireek and Abu Nakhlah. It also formed an important part of the road network of the 2022 Football World Cup.
The new two-level interchange includes two multi-span bridges, each 330 m long, with several exit points, loops and accesses to local roads connected to the interchange, facilitating traffic movement in all directions. In addition, new bypass roads and local roads with a total length of about 3 km were also constructed, along with safety barriers, street lighting and storm water drains.
To meet the requirements of the client, mageba’s new TENSA-POLYFLEX-RapidCure RC joint was selected for use.
Beyond ensuring seamless connections and low-noise emission values, this type of joint has very short curing time and enables the joint to be opened to traffic only three hours after casting.
For the interchange, TENSA-POLYFLEX-RapidCure joint of types RC40, RC60 and RC105 with lengths of 99 m, 190 m and 105 m respectively were delivered.
Depending on their type, the installed joints are able to accommodate movements of 40, 60 and 105 mm.
