The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced that completion rate in Rashid Hospital Tunnels has topped 82 per cent in the Project which comprises the construction of roads & two 2-lane tunnels serving the traffic inbound from Tariq bin Ziyad & Umm Harir Streets and heading towards the intersection of Al Al Riyadh Street with the extension of the Floating Bridge.

The first tunnel passes from Tariq bin Ziyad Street underneath Al Maktoum Bridge, and the other one comes from Umm Harir Street and passes across Oud Metha Park, and the two tunnels merge to form a 4-lane street heading towards Al Riyadh Street via Rashid Hospital .

“The Project is an integral part of a comprehensive project through which the RTA is seeking to ease traffic congestion in the vicinity of Rashid Hospital and Dubai Media Inc in a bid to raise the capacity of streets in the area to handle as much as 6,000 vehicles per hour,” said Engineer Maitha bin Udai, CEO of RTA Traffic & Roads Agency.
