RTA announces opening of Phase- I of Sheikh Rashid-bin Saeed Corridor Project

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has opened Phase I of the Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Improvement Corridor Project, extending from the intersection of Ras Al Khor with Dubai-Al Ain Road (Bu Kadra intersection) to the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road with Nad Al Hamar Road.

Works included widening the road from three to four lanes in each direction over a four-kilometre sector, and opening all bridges leading to Dubai Creek Harbour, extending 1,730 metres, with a capacity of about 10,600 vehicles per hour.

Mattar Al Tayer, DG and chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, RTA, said: “Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Corridor Improvement Project is one of the biggest projects currently undertaken by RTA. Works under Phase I and II of the project involve widening Ras Al Khor Road in a sector extending 8 kilometres from the intersection of Ras Al Khor with the Dubai- Al Ain Road up to the intersection with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road in addition to bridges extending 2km in total and a service road on both sides of the road.”

Al Tayer added: “Upon the completion of the two phases, the capacity of Ras Al Khor Road will jump to 10,000 vehicles per hour, and the travel time will drop from 20 minutes to about seven minutes. The project will enhance traffic safety and flow, and eliminate the existing overlapping traffic spots.

“The project serves a host of major development projects inhabited by 650k persons namely The Lagoons, Dubai Creek, Meydan Horizon, Ras Al Khor, Al Wasl, and Nad Al Hamar Complex. In future, the project’s scope will cover the construction of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Crossing, which crosses over the Dubai Creek and links Al Jadaf in Bur Dubai with the road separating Dubai Creek Project and Dubai Festival City.”
