That's according to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which says work on the expansion is now 65 per cent complete.

The project includes the installation of high-tech signs at selected locations, as well as a significant development of the RTA's traffic monitoring system, with over 100 cameras, incident detection systems and transit time devices being fitted across Dubai.

A new Traffic Control Centre is also being constructed, while infrastructure for the 450-km extension of the fibre optic network to connect the systems and the centre is under development as part of the project.
