The Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) today announced the opening of several road and bridges works in Jebel Ali Free Zone (South) forming parts of the mega Parallel Roads of Sheikh Zayed Improvement Project.

The Project spans an area extending in the north from the road leading to Al Hodh R/A, running across the internal roads and terminating near the 10th Intersection on Sheikh Zayed Road, and bordering Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Rd to the south.

The project comprises improvement of the Eastern & Western Parallel Roads in both directions within Jebel Ali Industrial Area, and Jafz South through constructing six bridges and four footbridges to ease the pressure on Sheikh Zayed Road, and the Industrial Area. It will also establish a link between the investment and economic zones of Dubai World’s projects, connecting them with the surrounding roads, besides linking Jebel Ali Port with Al Maktoum International Airport, and providing a road leading to the Expo Road of Jafz.

Last May, the RTA opened the service road leading to the Expo Road, and last December it opened the lane linking Al Maktoum Airport with Jafz South. More info
