Project is part of the UAE’s efforts to develop and enhance its roads and bridges network
The UAE Government has begun the next stage of construction of the Al Badiya Bridge project. The ministry aims to complete the project in several phases with the goal of having a trial launch before the start of the 2018-2019 school year, according to a report published by state news agency WAM.
The government has begun the construction of slip roads at the Al Badiya intersection for drivers coming from Dubai destined for the East Coast, for drivers from Meleiha driving to Ras Al Khaimah, for drivers coming from Ras Al Khaimah and heading to Sharjah, and those coming from Sharjah and driving to Dubai.
The project is part of the UAE’s efforts to develop its road and bridge networks, cope with the growing level of traffic, and improve transportation movement, explained Dr. Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development.
Al Nuaimi also announced the expansion of the Emirates Road to Ras Al Khaimah from three to six lanes, which will begin at the Al Badiya intersection and end at the Bridge 7 intersection on Al Dhaid Road. The project is said to be critical and includes intersections, tunnels and bridges.
