Roads & Transport Authority – Mohammed Al Munji: The Board of Directors of the Roads & Transport Authority ( RTA ), chaired by H.E. Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA , has recently awarded a contract for the New Lihbab Road project (Al Yalayes) linking the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road (at Al Houdh R/A) with Emirates Road, at a cost of 164 million dirham. Construction works in the project will begin as early as this month and continue for 18 months.
“The project comprises the construction of a dual carriage way of 4 lanes in each direction stretching 9 km in addition to one direct directional bridge to provide free traffic flow allowing left turns for vehicles inbound from Jebel Ali Port heading towards Emirates Road in the direction of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and other Emirates. The project also comprises the construction of two R/As; the first at the intersection of Al Yalayes Road with the Academic City Road, and the other at the intersection of the entry of the Golf Estates and the Dubai Investment Park. These R/As have been designed in such a way to allow for the construction of flyovers without having to make traffic diversions in future,” explained Al Tayer.
“Al Yalayes Road is considered one of the key corridors of roads network in the Dubai Emirate. Classified as a highway linking three key traffic corridors (Sheikh Zayed Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, and Emirates Road), the project provides an auxiliary traffic corridor to support the movement of goods within the Emirate of Dubai, and ease the movement of trucks on the Sheikh Zayed Road and the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.
