The project is intended to enhance the safety of road users, and ease the traffic congestion on Al Khail Road where the area is witnessing a significant rise in the number of heavy vehicles coupled with growing infrastructural works of projects and buildings in the surrounds.
“A one-lane entry and exit point will be constructed at Sheikh Rashid Street before the Al Garhoud Bridge in the direction of Deira. Project works include lighting as well as shifting and protecting the existing utility lines. The project is set for completion during the first quarter of next year. It is part of a host of projects planned and endorsed for easing the traffic flow in line with the RTA’s strategic objectives and goals,” Maitha added.
