The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed road widening in Al Jaddaf and Business Bay.

The road works covered a total of 1km, with a new lane spanning 600 metres added to Al Khail Road at Al Jaddaf to increase traffic flow towards Deira. The new lane increased the road’s total number of lanes to six, boosting the road’s capacity to 2,000 vehicles per hour and reducing congestion by 25 percent, said Hamad Hamad Al Shehhi, Director of Roads at RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency.

A new 435-metre lane was also added on Al Khail Road at the entrance to Business Bay.

“The surface expansion of Al Khail Road at the entrance to the Business Bay area will improve the flow of traffic entering the Business Bay area from Al Khail Road and enhance traffic safety in that sector in the direction of Abu Dhabi,” Al Shehhi said.

Further improvements will be undertaken at several locations on Al Khail Road as part of Al Khail Road Improvement Project, which is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024, Al Shehhi said. ICA/Expat Media
