Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a contract for phase two of the Seih Assalam dual carriageway project, according to the UAE state news agency WAM.

The works involve extending a section of road of about 21km, from the Al Qudra roundabout to the intersection of Dubai-Al Ain Road, at a cost of about AED178 million ($48.5m).

The road, which passes through Al Lisaili and Al Marmoom, will be expanded to have two lanes in each direction.

“Works also include constructing nine roundabouts to ensure a safe and smooth traffic flow in those areas, four crossings for camels and horses, a cycling track, service roads, and car parks besides broadening the existing parking lot of the Dubai International Endurance City,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the RTA.

“Project works also include street lights, rainwater drainage network, and rail along the median to fend off casual U-turns.”

The winner of the contract was not specified.
