The UAE’s national transport body, the RTA, recently endorsed a contract awarded for the construction of roads in Al Barsha. Worth almost $27.2mn, the contract includes the construction of internal roads at Al Barsha South 1, and collector roads at Al Barsha South 2.

“Constructing internal roads at Al Barsha stems from the commitment of the RTA to improve the infrastructure of roads, lighting, and storm water drainage at residential areas,” said Mattar Al Tayer, chairman of the board and executive director of the RTA.

“Over the past 3 years, the RTA (has) constructed more than 500km-long internal roads in various residential communities across the Emirate,” he added.

Construction of the internal roads network at Al Barsha 1 will extend 53KM, and those at Al Barsha 2 will be 7KM long, said a report by WAM. Additional entries to Al Barsha South 1 from Umm Suqueim Road, and to Al Barsha South 2 from Hessa Road will also be constructed as a part of the project.

“The project, which will be constructed over 18 months, comprises internal roads construction works with width of 7 meters in collector roads, and 6.6 meters in local roads, besides constructing longitudinal parking slots on both roadsides measuring 2.5 meters in width, lighting works, rainwater drainage works, and other utility works,” Al Tayer added.

The Five Year Plan (2012-2016) for internal road construction in Dubai’s residential communities includes 16 districts.
