All bridges to Dubai Creek Harbour are now open as part of a project that cuts down the travel time between Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road and the Bu Kadra intersection by 13 minutes. The newly opened roads are part of a project that cuts down the travel time between Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road and the Dubai-Al Ain Road.
Phase 1 of the Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Corridor project will also widen the road from three to four lanes in each direction over a 4km sector. “[It] is one of the biggest projects currently undertaken by RTA,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, RTA.
The project extends from the intersection of Ras Al Khor with Dubai-Al Ain Road (Bu Kadra intersection) to the intersection of Ras Al Khor road with Nad Al Hamar road.
The works under Phase I and II of the project involve widening the Ras Al Khor Road in a sector extending 8km from the intersection of Ras Al Khor with the Dubai- Al Ain Road up to the intersection with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road. This is in addition to bridges extending 2km in total and a service road on both sides of the road.
