RTA completes internal roads work costing $227m
DUBAI, March 19, 2017
Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed road construction works in 16 residential districts of the UAE at a cost of Dh835 million ($227.33 million), Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and RTA chairman, has announced.
In April, RTA will open new internal roads at Al Mamzar and Al Nahda 1 at a cost of Dh118 million ($32.13 million), he was quoted as saying in a Wam news agency report. Work is also under way on the construction of roads in Nad Al Sheba 4, at a cost of Dh89 million ($24.23 million), which is set for completion by the end of this year, he said.
"These projects are part of the Five-Year Plan 2012-2016, endorsed by Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, for constructing internal roads in several Dubai districts at a total cost of about Dh1 billion. The construction of these roads stems from the desire of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid to improve the road network, to meet the needs of residents and address the requirements of urban development and demographic expansion, which will eventually translate into happiness for the people," Al Tayer said.
Next month, RTA will open the internal roads project at Al Mamzar and Nahda 1, which comprise four districts, North and South of Cairo Street (District 134), and North and South of Baghdad Street (District 231), at a cost of Dh118 million," he added.
The project covers the construction of single-lane and dual carriageway streets over a 20-km stretch, revamping all existing road networks in the area, and providing 30 parking slots. The project works also included the installation of a new light signal on Amman Street to streamline the flow of traffic in the entrances and exits of Nahda 1, along with directional signage, ground markings and appropriate traffic signals.
