An AED 2 billion plan to upgrade road links between Dubai and Al Ain has been approved by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The project is expected to improve links with several highways, such as Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road and Emirates Road.
The upgrade will lead to the doubling of lanes from three to six in each direction over a 17km sector. Capacity of the road will be enhanced from 6,000 to 12,000 vehicles per hour slashing in half the transit time from Emirates Road interchange to Oud Metha Street from 16 to eight minutes.
The project has been divided into two phases. The first phase, which will extend 7km from the interchange of Emirates Road to the interchange of the Mohammed bin Zayed Road, will likely be completed by the first half of 2020, according to Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
