Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a contract for constructing internal roads project at three residential communities – Al Quoz 2, Nad Al Sheba 2 and Al Barsha South 3.

The network, which spans 34.4km in length, is expected to be completed in the second half of 2022.
Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, director-general, and chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA said that the project in Al Quoz 2 covers the construction of an internal roads network extending 16km in an area situated between Al Khail and Al Meydan Roads. The scope of the project also includes infrastructure works such as rainwater drainage and streetlights.

The project at Nad Al Sheba 2 covers the construction of 12km of roads along with parallel parking and streetlights besides linking it with the stormwater drainage and sewage networks. “An assessment will be carried out to the existing internal roads extending 27km from engineering, traffic safety and rainwater drainage perspectives. Nad Al Sheba 2 is a residential area bordering three main roads namely, The Dubai – Al Ain Road westwards, Nad Al Hamar Street eastwards and southwards, and Al Manama Street northwards. The project will enhance the efficiency of the traffic flow and traffic safety in the area by improving the entry/exit points, paving streets that serve all residential plots in the area in addition to providing two new entry/exit points from and to Al Manama and Nad Al Hamar Streets to improve the link with the surrounding areas,” said Al Tayer.

The internal roads that will be paved at Al Barsha South 3 extend 6.4km within the Mohammed bin Rashid Gardens. The area is surrounded by Al Barsha South northwards, Al Hebiah 1 and 4 southwards (Motor City and Sports City), Arjan eastwards, and Al Barsha South 4 westwards. This project too include streetlights, car parks and a bus station. The new roads will provide access to the recently developed land plots at Al Barsha South 3.

Among its other projects, the RTA is currently undertaking 77km internal roads extensions in Dubai, comprising 68km of single carriageways and 9km of collector dual carriageways at Al Khawaneej 2. It is believed to be in its final stages of completion.

Last year, RTA finished the Sama Al Jaddaf and Oud Al Mateena 1 Internal Roads Construction Projects. The Sama Al Jaddaf Project covered roads extending 12km and linking them with the main surrounding roads such as Al Khail Road southwards, and Sheikh Rashid Street northwards. The RTA also constructed several junctions including two signalised junctions and streetlight works.

The Oud Al Mateena 1 Internal Roads Project meanwhile covered the internal roads for the Mohammed bin Rashid Housing Establishment extending 7km and linking them with the surrounding roads network. The project ensures a smooth and safe entry and exit of roads users to nearby areas. Work also included streetlights, roadside parking and pedestrian pavements
