The Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Chaired by HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, has endorsed the award of an AED60 million contract for constructing internal roads at Oud Al Mateena 2.
This project is part of the 5 Year Plan (2012 – 2016), which had been endorsed by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, for paving internal roads in a number of residential districts in Dubai Emirate, costing about one AED1 billion.
“The construction of internal roads project at Oud Al Mateena 2 stems from the keenness of RTA to improve the infrastructure of the area such as road works, street lighting, and rainwater drainage systems at residential neighborhood. The underlying objective of the plan is to meet the needs of demographic growth and urban expansion, and accordingly bring happiness to residents of the Emirate.
Works have recently started in the new project that comprises the construction of an 18-km long road at a width of 7 meters, roadside parking slots at width of 2.5 meters in a sector extending 8 km on both sides of the road, street lighting works, and storm-water drainage system.
