Dubai’s RTA awards project to upgrade key junction

The works are designed to ease traffic flow between Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority has awarded a contact to upgrade the junction linking the Al Qudra and Jebel Ali Lehbab roads.

The works will upgrade the junction to a multi-tier flyover providing free traffic flow in both directions and easing congestion between Jebel Ali Free Zone and Abu Dhabi.

RTA director general Mattar Al Tayer said the project comprised two additional bridges, right-turn and u-turn ramps, the widening of connecting streets, lighting, rainwater drainage, utility lines and a cycling bridge.

“The widening of Al Qudra Road is one of RTA ’s strategic projects that provides a key traffic corridor starting from Jumeirah to Umm Suqeim Street; which had been improved through the construction of two bridges of three lanes in each direction,” said Al Tayer.

“The first extends over the Eastern Parallel Road (Al Asayel Street), and the second passes over the Western Parallel Road (First Al Khail Road).”

The RTA has enacted several phases of improvements on Al Qudra road including its widening from one to three lanes in each direction over a 12km section.

Other phases saw the widening of two bridges to three lanes in each direction and the construction of crossings for vehicles and camels, a cycling lane and other facilities for cyclists including a rest area and parking stand.

In May, the RTA completed improvement works spansning 20km from Al Qudra roundabout to the intersection of Dubai-Al Ain Road.
