Dubai's RTA completes Jebel Ali road project
Dubai, May 12, 2014
The Traffic and Roads Agency of Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), recently completed works under phase 5 of Jebel Ali – Lehbab Road Widening & Improvement Project; which will be opened for road users in October this year.
Maitha bint Udai, executive director of the RTA, said: “This phase of the project comprised carrying out new improvement works in a sector of the Road that extends six km starting from the Interchange of the Jebel Ali – Lehbab Road with the Dubai – Al Ain Road, widening the road from two to four lanes in both directions along with pavements in the direction of Hatta R/A, in addition to ground marking, traffic signals, lighting, safety means, rain water drainage and sewage works.”
“By completing this phase, the number of lanes has risen from two to four in each direction of the Jebel Ali – Lehbab Road from Hatta R/A to the Sheikh Zayed Road passing across the Dubai – Al Ain Road and the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road to terminate at the intersection with the Sheikh Zayed Road in about a 50 km-long stretch constructed at world-class standards.”
“Since the Jebel Ali – Lehbab Road is among the strategic traffic corridors under the master plan of roads network implemented by the RTA, the project is poised to bring about potential benefits including the provision of alternative highways for motorists heading towards Jebel Ali Industrial Area and Free Zone and surrounding areas, as well as those heading towards the capital Abu Dhabi and vice-versa, without driving through the downtown area,” she added. – TradeArabia News Service
