The Dh700-million Al Khail Road Improvement Project is expected to cut down travel time by up to 30 percent, according to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

The RTA recently awarded the contract for the massive road improvement project, which includes the construction of bridges in seven locations along Al Khail Road, including Zabeel, Meydan, Al Quoz 1, Ghadeer Al Tair, and Jumeirah Village Circle.

Current intersections and bridges will be expanded to allow nearly 20,000 vehicles to pass through per hour, which would improve traffic flow on Al Khail Road, a major highway in Dubai that supports Sheikh Zayed Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, and Emirates Road.

Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, said bridges will be constructed linking Zabeel Palace Street to Oud Metha Road; Al Meydan Road to Ras Al Khor Road, and in Al Qouz 1, Ghadeer Al Tair and Jumeirah Village Circle.

Road widening works will also be done on Al Khail Road in Al Jaddaf and Al Khail Road at the entrance to Business Bay. ICA/Expat Media
