The road has been widened from three to six lanes in the direction of Al Ain.
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced on Saturday that it has opened a sector of the Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project.
The newly constructed road has been widened from three to six lanes in the direction of Al Ain.
The sector, which extends 8km, starts from Bu Kadra Junction to the junction of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road with Dubai-Al Ain Road.
Works completed included two underpasses to serve the traffic from and to Al Meydan Road, service roads leading to the residential communities of Nad Al Sheba 1, 2, 3 and 4 as well as the new Nad Al Sheba Bridge, Meydan district and Meydan Heights.
As such, motorists coming from Dubai heading towards Nad Al Sheba 2 via the underpass are required to use the service road at Exit 6 on Oud Metha Street.
Those exiting Meydan Heights heading to the Dubai-Al Ain Road are required to use the temporary road connecting the traffic from Meydan Heights through the Abjar Street heading to the mainstream Dubai-Al Ain Road, be it in the direction of Al Ain or Dubai, via Street 34 at Nad Al Sheba.
The project, which extends eight kilometres along Ras Al Khor Road, runs from the intersection of the Dubai-Al Ain Road to the junction of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road.
"The project serves Al Quoz 2, between Al Khail Road and Meydan Road. It involves the construction of a network of main roads extending 16km along with associated infrastructure works," said Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer.
The inauguration of the lane follows the completion of a trial period of the lane which contributes to improving the bus journey time by as much as 24 per cent and delivering better services to public transport riders.
RTA’s joint efforts with the General HQ of Dubai Police have reduced road accident fatalities from almost 22 cases to 1.8 cases per 100,000 between 2006 and 2020, and reduced pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 population from 9.5 to 0.5 between 2007 and 2020," noted Al Tayer.
The IPA President advised that emerging markets should be ready for these partnerships and collaborations and invest in their e-commerce capabilities as well as ensuring the necessary skills are there to facilitate their advancements.
