Works on Tripoli’s
Eastern Ring Road begin
Will be linked to Arab Highway, West Ring Road
Expropriation of property for Tripoli’s Eastern Ring Road has just begun. The $100 million project is partly funded by the Islamic Development Bank (IDB).
The 8.5 kilometers road starts from Wadi Abu Halka on the coastal road and reaches the entrance of the Beddawi Oil Installations. It passes through Ras Maska, Zeitoun, Majdalya, and Beddawi. Works will be supervised and tendered by the Council for Development and Reconstruction (CDR).
The road will be made up of two lanes in both directions and a service road on each side, with a total width of 40 meters. Several traffic converters will be developed at Abu Halka, Ras Maska, Zgharta, and Beddawi. It is also composed of ten overpasses and underpasses, a 170-meter bridge in Abi Samra, two bridges in Wadi Abu Halka, a bridge over Wadi Hab, and a bridge over Wadi Abu Ali.
The project will be executed in two phases. The first includes the road from Ras Maska to the Danniyeh bifurcation. The second phase is for the road traveling from Danniyeh to Beddawi, reaching the Arab Highway and the West Ring Road.
