Disruption and impact to be minimised as much as possible, senior official says
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that there will be key traffic diversions on the Jebel Ali-Lehbab Road in connection with ongoing construction works at the Route 2020 Project site.
In a statement, the RTA said that the traffic diversions will be in place until the completion of the required works. It did not give a timeframe for when the works would be completed.
Minor changes will be made in the lanes of the Jebel Ali-Lehbab Road in both directions, to make room for the casting of the piers of Dubai Metro’s elevated track in the median, it explained.
The same number of existing lanes will be maintained, it added.
“RTA has set up a plan for the temporary traffic diversions of Route 2020, which will be undertaken over several phases during the project construction period,” remarked Adel Al Marzouqi, the director of the Right-of-Way at RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency.
The project teams and contractors will do their best to ensure a smooth traffic flow and minimise the impact on residents until completion of all project works, he asserted.
“These parties are keen on constructing the infrastructure of Route 2020 according to the plan and timetable set to ensure smooth traffic flow on roads and internal roads of residential and business complexes affected by this strategic project,” Al Marzouqi added.
