Street 25, which runs parallel to the Dubai Airport Road, requires immediate attention. This street connects motorists to Airport Road via Marrakech Street and Nad Al Hammar Street.

The Emirates Metro Station is located at the end of this street, which means it is also used by a large number of pedestrians.

About six months ago, after the Metro construction was complete, road works began, but they’ve been left incomplete. Half the street has been left in a dug-up state and there is no tarred road.

Motorists have to experience a near off-roading experience and pedestrians struggle to walk on the same street. The road now bears potholes due to rains.
