Dubai has announced a new Dh700 million project aimed at reducing travel time on Al Khail Road by 30 percent. The Al Khail Road improvement initiative involves the construction of five bridges to alleviate traffic congestion along the highway.

The road enhancement efforts will encompass various locations including Zabeel, Meydan, Al Quoz 1, Ghadeer Al Tair, and Jumeirah Village Circle. The project contract has already been awarded.

Al Khail Road serves as a crucial traffic route in Dubai, stretching from the Business Bay crossing to its junction with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, featuring six lanes in each direction.

According to Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), the improvement project aims to bolster the capacity of roads running parallel to and supporting Sheikh Zayed, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, and Emirates roads.
