Drivers of Dubai used cars, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) recently made an announcement about the Al Qudra-Lehbab Project in Dubai. Two-thirds of its construction works have been completed! The completion of this project is expected by the end of this year. CarSwitch.com gives you the complete details.
The RTA’s Director-General and Chairman of the board of directors, Mattar Al Tayer confirmed that 65% of the construction works of the project have been completed. The aim of this project is to allow free flow of traffic from all directions by revamping the junctions from intersecting roads into a flyover. Similarly, the new Dubai-Sharjah corridor cuts travel by 8 minutes by allowing free flow of traffic.
“Lehbab Road is a key traffic corridor offering an alternative link to Expo Road, Jafza and Abu Dhabi-Bound Traffic and vice versa without going through the downtown area. Completion rate reached 70 per cent in bridges and 90 per cent in the cycling bridge. The entire project is set for full completion by the end of the year!”, said Mattar Al Tayer.
The broadening of Qudra Road has provided a crucial passageway from Jumeirah to Umm Suqeim Street, which has also been improved by the construction of two bridges of three lanes on both sides.
One of these bridges passes over Western Parallel Road (First Al Khail Road) and the other crosses over East Parallel Road (Al Asayel Street). These bridges have eased traffic flow on Arabian Ranches interchange on Mohammad Bin Zayed Road as well as the Al Khail flyover. Moreover, it allows traffic to flow smoothly from Al Qudra to Al Qudra Bridge passing over Emirates Road till Seih Assalam.
The improvements of the Al Qudra Road has been spread over phases. The first phase included widening the road from one to three lanes on each side over a 12km stretch from the Lehbab Intersection to Bab Al Shams roundabout.
Moving forward, crossings for camels and vehicles were constructed along with broadening two bridges to three lanes in each direction. Construction works also covered an 18km cycling track with a rest area that has many facilities.
A total of 10 projects were accomplished under the improvement of Lehbab and Expo Roads which covered a 55km long sector from the Lehbab police Station to Sheikh Zayed Road. Upgrading of the roads also comprised of constructing a flyover at the 8th Interchange of Sheikh Zayed Road as well as widening the road from two to four lanes in each direction.
As soon as this project is fully complete, residents can enjoy driving their Dubai used cars on these new and improved roads. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a car, consider doing so through CarSwitch.com for an excellent car buying and selling experience with zero hassle.
