RTA awards contract for construction of internal roads project in Dubai

Three residential communities will see internal roads networks spanning a total length of 34.4km developed to cope with demographic and urban growth

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a contract for the construction of an internal roads project at three residential communities – Al Quoz 2, Nad Al Sheba 2 and Al Barsha South 3 – it has been announced.

According to a WAM report, the network, which spans a total of 34.4 kilometres in length, is expected to be completed by the second half of 2022. It added that the RTA was undertaking this project in response to the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and the orders of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince, and Chairman of the Executive Council.

It explained that such directives call for the improvement of infrastructure around residential areas to cope with their demographic and urban growth, while also raising the living standards and increasing the happiness of residents.

“The project at Al Quoz 2 covers the construction of an internal roads network extending 16km in an area situated between Al Khail and Al Meydan Roads. The scope of the project also includes infrastructure works such as rainwater drainage and streetlights,” said Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General, and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA.

“The project at Nad Al Sheba 2 covers the construction of roads extending 12km along with parallel parking and streetlights besides linking it with the stormwater drainage and sewage networks. An assessment will be carried out to the existing internal roads extending 27km from engineering, traffic safety and rainwater drainage perspectives.

“Nad Al Sheba 2 is a residential area bordering three main roads namely, The Dubai – Al Ain Road westwards, Nad Al Hamar Street eastwards and southwards, and Al Manama Street northwards. The project will enhance the efficiency of the traffic flow and traffic safety in the area by improving the entry/exit points, paving streets that serve all residential plots in the area in addition to providing two new entry/exit points from and to Al Manama and Nad Al Hamar Streets to improve the link with the surrounding areas,” he continued.

“Internal roads to be paved at Al Barsha South 3 extend 6.4 km within the Mohammed bin Rashid Gardens. The area is surrounded by Al Barsha South northwards, Al Hebiah 1 and 4 southwards (Motor City and Sports City), Arjan eastwards, and Al Barsha South 4 westwards. The project works include streetlights, car parks and a bus station. The project will provide access to the recently developed land plots at Al Barsha South 3.”

Al Tayer added that the RTA is currently undertaking internal roads extending 77km comprising 68 km of single carriageways and 9km of collector dual carriageways at Al Khawaneej 2. The contractor is working on the final touches of the project, he concluded.
