Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project to cut travel time to just 8 minutes

 

What used to take 16 minutes will now only take you eight minutes when traveling from the Ras Al Khor Road extension to Emirates Road if you take the newly improved Dubai-Al Ain Road.

That’s a 50 percent reduction in travel time during peak hours. Traffic snarls that used to extend about two kilometres are also solved, thanks to the Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project.

The Dh2 billion project was recently inaugurated by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council.

The scope of the Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project spans 17 km from the intersection of Emirates Road to the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road along the Dubai-Al Ain Road.

Construction works included widening the road from three to six lanes in each direction, and constructing six main interchanges along with bridges and ramps stretching 11.5 km.

The improvements will double the intake of the road from 12,000 to 24,000 vehicles per hour in both directions.

The project will benefit a population of 1.5 million living or working in the neighbourhood on both sides of the road. It also serves 25 universities and colleges where a total of 27,500 students are enrolled. ICA/Expat Media
