RTA Awards Contract to Improve 11 kms of Saih Al Dahal Road
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a contract to improve and widen Saih Al Dahal Road connecting with Saih Al Salam Road and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
The existing single-carriageway Road will be removed and replaced by a dual carriageway extending 11 km comprised of two lanes in each direction along with a median.
The road will have 3 roundabouts to ease the traffic flow in all directions and connect with the entries of Al Qudra Lakes.
His Excellency Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority said: “The project will increase the street intake from an existing 1800 vehicles to 4000 vehicles in each direction to accommodate the continued growth in traffic volumes.
"Thus, it will ease the mobility of residents and visitors to the existing oases on both sides of the street, desert areas and Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.
“The project starts from the roundabout at the junction of Saih Al Dahal Road and Saih Al Salam Road in the North, immediately after Al Qudra Cycling Station, and heads in the direction of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in the South."
The project complements RTA’s development projects in the area.
