Street Design Manual for LRDP
Place Dynamix are working on behalf of Ashghal (the Public Works Authority) to prepare a street design manual for the local roads & drainage programme in Qatar. The guidance covers all aspects of street design across the whole country as it embarks upon its ambitious programme to build new streets and redevelop older streets in established areas such as Downtown Doha and Doha Industrial Area. The manual contains guidelines, principles and design examples relating to streetscape, public realm and landscape design. The manual will provide the guidelines and standards to be used by all engineers working on over 400 individual projects in Qatar over the next 5 years.
Place Dynamix’s role is to raise the standard of street design in the country through international best practice guidance with the main objectives of reducing road fatalities, reduce congestion and promote alternative transport methods such as walking, cycling and public transit.
