G-Ring Road also provides three new entrances to the Industrial Area from the south, providing a direct link with HIA. It also connects with Hamad Port, Mesaieed, Bu Samra Border, and the northern areas through its connection with the Orbital Highway.

Areas served

It also serves a large number of neighborhoods and residential and commercial complexes in Al Wakrah, Al Wukair, Al Thumama and other areas, especially with the opening of Al Wakrah Bypass during the current year.

G-Ring Road is linked to Al Wakrah Bypass at the new Umm Beshr Interchange, which is a four-level interchange that includes the highest bridge in Qatar, about 36 meters high. The road also includes 48 km of pedestrian and cycle paths.
