The Orbital Highway, Contract 2 (NOH2) came from intentions to bypass Doha City by connecting Salwa Road and North Relief Road. This will relieve the existing traffic congestion that is expected to increase in the future.

NOH2 is located to the north and west of Doha City. This superstructure consists of 10 lanes for light vehicles, five in each direction, along with additional collector and distributor roads.

The road network provides access to the existing and planned developments by way of eight interchanges. NOH2 connects local roads and existing highways with various types of civil structures, including bridges, viaducts, underpasses, and tunnels that integrate pedestrian and bicycle paths along the entire route.

SYSTRA IBT is responsible for the preliminary and detailed design of three junctions totaling 20,000 m2 of deck, construction engineering, and support.
