To ease congestion and improve safety
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the Tripoli Street Improvement Project had reached 90% completion. The project is expected to be opened by the end of June this year.
The 12-km Street, which links Sh. Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road acts as a parallel one to the recently re-opened Airport Street Improvement Project.
Said HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA: “The project will enhance the link between Dubai and Sharjah, ease traffic movement and streamline the access to Warqaa and Mirdif districts.
“It will also improve the traffic safety at the intersections with Rabat and Nad Al Hamar Streets nearby of Bel Remaitha Club.
“The project will increase the traffic flow to about 12,000 vehicles per hour in both directions (6000 vehicles per hour per direction) and reduce the traffic volumes by 30%.
“Upon completion, the project will act as a parallel to Al Amardi–Al Khawaneej as well as Al Awir - Ras Al Khor traffic corridors.”
Work is progressing at a fast pace. The flyover between Tripoli St. and Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street is also complete.
Said Al Tayer: “Completion rate has reached 92% in the bridge at the intersection of Tripoli-Nouakchott Streets, and 75% in the tunnel at the intersection of Tripoli-Algeria Streets (Mirdif-Warqaa).”
“The project includes the widening of Tripoli St. over a 6.5 km stretch from the intersection with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road (nearby Mirdif City Centre) up to Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street.
“It also includes the construction of a new 5.3 km-long street of three lanes in each direction from the intersection of Tripoli-Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Streets up to Emirates Road. Thus, the entire corridor will span about 12 km.”
