How to travel to Qasr Al Hosn

With plenty of roads temporarily closed tomorrow evening, for the Qasr Al Hosn Festival, we point out the best ways to travel to the event.

Five major roads and internal streets will be partly closed from 2pm to 7pm tomorrow during the opening ceremony of the Qasr Al Hosn Festival.

They include Airport Road, Al Falah Street, Hamdan Street, Electra Street and Khalid bin Al Waleed Street.

Airport Road will be closed from Hamdan Street to Al Falah Street, while Electra and Hamdan streets will be closed between Airport Road and Khalid bin Al Waleed Street.

Mashtal Street, an internal street located in Khalidiya between Airport Road and King Khalid bin Abdul Aziz Street, will also be closed.

Buses operating along these roads, on routes 6 to 9, 32, 34, 44 and 54, will be diverted.

There will be a free "park and ride" service from Mashtal Al Manhal in Khalidiya, where there are more than 500 parking spaces.

The service will run from 7pm to 1am on Thursday, and will continue throughout the festival from 2pm to 1am on weekends, and 2pm to midnight on weekdays.
