Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed internal roads and lighting work in five Al Qusais Industrial areas to triple road capacity from 500 vehicles an hour to 1,500.

The project, in Al Qusais Industrial areas one, two, three, four and five, included constructing 32 roads covering 10 kilometers and installing streetlights along 43,000 meters.

His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, Director General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority, commented, “This internal roads project aligns with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and the instructions of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council.

"These directives call for upgrading the infrastructure of residential and industrial areas to support the growing population and urbanisation in the emirate, foster well-being, and promote happiness. 

The internal roads project has enhanced connectivity with four main streets: Amman Street, Beirut Street, Aleppo Street, and Damascus Street. It has also improved access and exit points to over 320 workshops, 25 residential buildings, shops, and educational facilities, benefiting an estimated 60,000 residents in the area.
