DUBAI – A Dh500 million project to improve traffic around the Al Khawaneej area will cut traffic delay to just 45 seconds, according to the chairman of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
As part of the project, the Al Khawaneej roundabout will be replaced with an underpass. It also covers the construction of three main junctions and service roads extending 23 kilometres.
The project will also link Al Awir nd Al Khawaneej areas and improve accessibility to Airport Street.
“It will enhance the link between Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan and Emirates Roads, and cut the delay to just 45 seconds in this sector,” said Mattar Al Tayer, RTA chairman.
Al Khawaneej Street will also be expanded with three lanes in each direction, and a two-lane flyover will be constructed at the intersection of Al Amardi Street and Emirates Road.
The roadwork is expected to improve the traffic flow on Al Khawaneej and Al Amardi Roads, and reduce the delay time in the area from two minutes to one, said Al Tayer. GAD/Expat Media
