3.8 Al Wakrah — Al Wakrah Road

Location

Context

M

M

M

Al Wakrah Road serves as the main spine of the

town and the major connector to Doha. Owing to

its geographic positioning, this street is at the

centre of major activities in Wakrah, connecting

the fishing village and port to the newly restored

heritage quarter, a number of retail and

commercial uses flank this street. This being the

most important street, Pearl roundabout

announces the arrival in Al Wakrah. A number of

metro stations are planned along this street that

will connect this town to Doha in the north and

Mesaieed in the south. This street has the

potential of becoming a great street in Al

Wakrah, which is the second city of Qatar,

currently undergoing significant redevelopment

with the proposal for a FIFA stadium underway

as well.

Al Wakrah has immense potential for cultural

and sports tourism and its public realm needs to

respond to the expectations from a second-tier

city of Qatar.

Opportunities and Constraints

Al Wakrah Road, where it flanks the

recently restored heritage quarter, is

the notional centre of Al Wakrah city.

Metro stations are also planned in

this location. At the same time, this

area is an important junction with Al

Wakhair Street.

Presently, Al Wakrah Road functions

as an expressway causing severance

between the Eastern side, the

heritage quarter, the waterfront and

the Western side with mostly

residential areas.

Metro station planning is an

opportunity to bring the two sides of

the city together by introducing a

high quality public realm with

pedestrian crossings, street

furniture, tree planting and signage

at appropriate locations.

Culture-Heritage

• Alturath-iyya Theme is applicable to areas

with a concentration of cultural destinations

that exist mostly within City Cores and the

contributory heritage assets that may be

present. The Theme occurs within cities and

remote areas.

• As illustrated in the Zone-Theme diagram on

this page; culture and heritage areas are

dispersed within all Character Zones of Qatar.

• Characterised by traditional urban fabric

interspersed with contemporary architectural

features in the city, and protected heritage

architectural features in villages and rural

areas, this Theme is at the core of Qatari

identity.

Relationship with ROW

• Typically within Alturath-iyya are

neighbourhood streets with ROW 40m or less

as illustrated in the diagram to the left.

• The Theme does not have relevant

representative MMUP Typical Street Sections,

thus the typical sections are developed by

referencing Residential and Commercial

Sections where relevant.

KEY

VOLUME II SECTION 06 - THEME A

The Culture and Heritage Theme demands a

sensitive approach to public realm interventions,

driven by the heavy flow of visitors and the variety

of destinations in the urban fabric. The street

layout reflects the character of the area. Local

destinations will support denser clusters of street

furniture within the streetscape, whereas the

interconnecting street corridors will be

characterised by minimal and modest layout,

reducing constraints to movement.

Improved walkability is one of the major principles,

providing wide, clear pedestrian routes responding

to the needs of nearby visitor attractions and daily

life. The urban fabric and land use suggests that

sufficient car parking should be provided outside

the right of way, to reduce numbers of on street

parking spaces. Streets are wide to encourage and

accommodate a variety of landscape elements to

enhance public interaction and create a series of

gathering opportunities for visitors to the area.


Alturathiyya

Qatar Public Realm Guidelines

.12m

Crossings at junctions and mid-block

crossings to be provided to help with

pedestrian flow between destinations and

to help maintain slow vehicle speeds.

Appropriate paving materials to be used to

guide the visually impaired to the

crossings.

Signage to be located within the furniture

or parking zone, where appropriate.

Shared space road design in pedestrian

priority areas. All shared space/ flush

kerbs to have public realm protected with

bollards/ furniture/ planting to prevent

unauthorized parking.

Cultural trail to be incorporated into

streetscape through art at feature nodes

to create interest and continue desire

lines.

As drinking fountains were traditionally

provided at corners, incorporate

contemporary reinterpretation with water

feature reference within cultural precincts.

Shaded areas to be provided at regular intervals

(trees / canopy / shelter) and at key junctions/

destinations.

Trees to be planted on both sides of the street

where possible to provide shade.

Flowering trees to be located at corners/junctions

within a refuge areas to serve as visual landmarks.

Along the street, tree shade to be provided for

pedestrians at 30m maximum intervals

Existing street trees to be respected, retained and

maintained where possible.


A.12m/Planting corridor/clear footpath

• For locations where asymmetrical roads are

utilized to create larger pedestrian footway zones

a minimum footway width of 1.8m must be

provided on either side of the ROW. This minimum

1.8m must be clear of all signage, lighting, street

trees and other vertical obstructions, if required

the ROW design must allow for these elements to

be installed in bump out areas and not within the

footway.

• For posted speeds of 50kmph or less, the clearway

zone is a minimum of 0.6m and a maximum of

1.0m.

Guidelines

Section elevation

Colour plan

Public Realm Zoning Guidelines

General principle: The mobility network for

pedestrians to be continuous and joined-up without

impediment to disabled users. Priority to be given to

pedestrians by providing a clear pedestrian corridor,

unobstructed by parking, vehicular access or utilities.

Local distinctiveness to be maintained where this is

established; Clutter to be reduced to a minimum and

public realm unified.

Footway zone

• A minimum width of footway to be provided, free

of physical obstructions such as highway signage,

street trees, street furniture, utility boxes, pipe

work and man-hole covers.

Planting & furniture zone

• Planting and furniture zone is clearly delineated.

Planting and furniture to be co-located such that

public realm seating will be shaded by trees.

Where appropriate, the replication of historic

furniture should be accurate both in terms of its

fabrication and setting (Please refer to Vol.III

Section 04.)

Parking zone

• Parking areas to be designed to mitigate the visual

impact on the public realm.

Road zone

• Road zone to be designed to guide driving

behaviours, and give priority to pedestrians.

Cycle lane

• Cyclists will share the vehicular lanes on smaller

streets. Dedicated cycle tracks/lanes to be

provided on ROWs 32m and above. On large

streets, where enough width is available, cycle

lane to be incorporated within the pavement zone.

Buffer/ Clearway zone

• Clearway zone from front of kerb to tree planting,

street lights and other vertical elements.

Median

• Planting along central medians to be provided.
