The project consists of 10 lanes [5 in each direction] for light vehicles with additional collectors/distributor roads. Four separate dedicated truck lanes [2 in each direction] run parallel to the Orbital from Salwa Road to Junction 5 where a 320m long cut and cover tunnel splits away from the light vehicle carriageway towards Junction 12 Dukhan Interchange.
