Qatar's first air-conditioned pedestrian bridge

Qatar's first air-conditioned pedestrian bridge

With a sharp rise in temperatures, the first air-conditioned pedestrian bridge in the Industrial Area has come as a blessing for a large number of residents of the area dominated by expatriate single workers.

The bridge near Street No. 1 in the Industrial Area also has surveillance cameras.

In a bid to improve pedestrians' safety, 267 new crossings, pathways and overpasses will be built in the coming years, the Ministry of Interior said in 2014.

The plan includes 18 one-way, 113 all-direction crossings and several pedestrian bridges, some of which will be air-conditioned, the ministry had said. [The Peninsula]

They'll probably have guards at the entrance to stop Westerners coming in at weekends :)

This is very good, I just hope they don't hang out in there to escape the heat, next thing you'll see is guards patrolling the place

I have a feeling that time will tick slowly when walking through this bridge. This should be called 'Interstellar Bridge' instead of industrial area bridge.

Brit: Why do you need to bring out into the open all the good ideas of Rizks? You are causing losses to his Karak business. Its not fair.

I just hope that Rizks doesn't open a Karak Stand at the entrance :O(
