There’s good news for motorists as four new flyovers spanning 2.6 km are now open at the intersection of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Dubai-Al Ain Road.
A two-lane bridge at the junction of Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street and Dubai-Al Ain Road has also been completed, along with two connecting roads facilitating U-Turns for motorists coming from Dubai.
The latest developments are part of the first phase of a AED 2 billion road improvement project in the area.
It will help double the capacity of Dubai-Al Ain Road from 6,000 to 12,000 vehicles per hour per direction.
The project will also cut the journey time on the highway - from Bu Kadra junction to Emirates Road junction, from 16 to 8 minutes.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council has reviewed the progress of the project.
The project underscores #Dubai’s keenness to pursue vital projects supporting the economy. @rta_dubai opened four bridges spanning 2,600 metres at the junction of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road & Dubai-Al Ain Road of two lanes in each direction to enhance smooth traffic movement. pic.twitter.com/xXl4ktbQFl— Dubai Media Office (@DXBMediaOffice) June 14, 2020
