RTA awards contract for internal roads in Al Barsha South 3

Project works spans roads, streetlights, carparks and bus stops

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a contract for the construction of internal roads at Al Barsha South 3. The firm said the contract was awarded in a bid to meet the needs of urbanisation in the area.

According to a statement, the project involves the construction of internal roads spanning 6.4km and is situated at the Mohammed bin Rashid Gardens. It is surrounded by Al Barsha South 2 to the north, Al Hebiah 1 and 4 to the south, Motor City, Sports City and Arjan to the east, and Al Barsha South 4 to the west. The project works also includes streetlights, carparks and bus stops.

“Constructing internal roads stems from the RTA’s keenness to upgrade the basic infrastructure of roads, streetlights and rainwater drainage systems at residential areas,” remarked Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, the director-general, chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA.

Al Tayer noted that the project facilitates access to the recently developed district of Al Barsha South 3 to serve about 4,500 inhabitants. The project will improve connectivity of the area by raising the capacity of entry/exit points of Hessa Street by 1,500 vehicles per hour.

The RTA also intends to undertake the construction of internal roads at Al Quoz 2 in the area between Al Khail and Meydan Roads, together with main roads network extending 16km. It also plans to carry out infrastructure works that include rainwater drainage network, streetlight works, safe pedestrian lanes and levelling the alleyways between houses, he remarked.

Al Tayer also said that the RTA is all set to pave the internal roads extending 12km at Nad Al Sheba 2. He concluded, “This residential community is bordered by three main roads: Dubai – Al Ain Road towards the west, Nad Al Hamar St towards the east and south, and Al Manama St towards the north. Construction works to be carried out include parallel parking, streetlights, rainwater drainage system and sewage network.”
