Dubai to Build New Roads to Ease Traffic and Increase Vehicle Capacity

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has been working on a new infrastructure plan for Dubai since May this year. The plan aims to make the city more accessible and less congested.

The first phase of the project will include the construction of a new road on Al Quoz 2 and Nad Al Sheba 2 in which a new bridge will be built. It will also include widening of existing roads such as Al Khalil Road, Umm Al Sheif, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and Ras Al Khor.

The second phase will focus on improving the road network in all those areas, featuring more than 40 projects worth Dh2.5bn ($665m), said Major General Abdullah Al Merriam, director general of RTA’s Roads Agency.

The new roads will be built along with the extension of existing roads and highways that connect residential areas with commercial and industrial districts in Dubai, said the RTA.

Al Quoz 2

As per the director general and chairman of the RTA, 70% of the work in the Al Quoz 2 road has been completed. Street lights, signals, and rainwater sewerage work have been completed.

Al Barsha South 3

The Al Barsha South 3 project will facilitate the newly developed society of 4,500 resident tourists that use rental cars in that area. It’ll improve the area’s connectivity by increasing entry and exit points by 15,00 vehicles per hour.

Nad Al Sheba 2

The project has been completed to about 60%. It includes the extension of the roads to 12 km, street lights, signals, and rainwater drainage. These new roads will allow the residents of Nad Al Sheba to connect with the main downtown of Dubai directly without using other interchanges.
