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
Hmm..I think,actually this is the first Pedestrians bridge I've seen in Qatar
Meet you soon with my hammock.
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.
Its meeting or meting place confusion!
WELL DONE QATAR.....CONGRATS FOR HELPING THOUSANDS OF LABOURS......TODAY THEY WILL BE THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.
You are corrected
Correct me if I am wrong, as far as I know, this is also the first pedestrian bridge in Doha =)
Acchabaccha : you're right . I'm sorry. It's just bitterness about an incident at the Ramada Car Park :0(
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(
This could become a meeting place.
