RTA announces completion of improvements on Al Manama Street

The infrastructure project entailed the construction of a new traffic corridor linking Al Meydan and Al Manama Streets and crossing over the Dubai-Al Ain Road

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed improvements of Al Manama Street, which is part of the Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project that began in May 2022.

According to a WAM report, the project is part of ongoing efforts to upgrade roads and transportation infrastructure, while also supporting Dubai’s urban and sustainable development. The project entailed the construction of a new traffic corridor linking Al Meydan and Al Manama Streets and crossing over the Dubai-Al Ain Road via a flyover of four lanes in each direction. Construction included slip roads that would link with the Dubai-Al Ain Road.

The scope of the project also included increasing the capacity of the existing Al Manama Street by transforming the first three intersections with Aden Street, Sanaa Street and Nad Al Hamar Street into signalised surface junctions, the RTA stated.

In early August 2022, the RTA said that works at the Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Corridor Improvement Project were 75% complete and, later in the month, the RTA said that 55% of construction work at the Falcon Interchange improvement project had been completed.

In addition, the project increased the number of traffic lanes to four in each direction up to the intersection with Nad Al Hamar Street, besides changing several traffic lanes on Aden Street.

These improvements enhanced the road capacity to 16,000 vehicles per hour in both directions, cut delay rates, and improved the traffic flow at intersections, the RTA explained.

The project works also entailed upgrading the roundabout at the intersection of Al-Manama Street with Nad Al-Hamar Street to a signalised junction, designating a minimum of two lanes for left turns in all directions, and a free lane for right turns along with a minimum of three lanes to ensure a smooth traffic flow.

In early October 2022, the RTA awarded contracts for the construction of internal roads across four communities.
