Travel time on Dubai’s Al Khail road to be reduced with Dh700 million project

Dubai’s Al Khail Road is set to undergo a transformative upgrade aimed at cutting travel time by 30%. Announced on Sunday, the Dh700 million project will involve the construction of five bridges, targeting congestion hotspots along the highway.

The comprehensive road improvement initiative will span various locations including Zabeel, Meydan, Al Quoz 1, Ghadeer Al Tair, and Jumeirah Village Circle. The project’s contract has been awarded, marking a significant step toward implementation.

As one of Dubai’s vital traffic arteries, Al Khail Road stretches from the Business Bay crossing to its junction with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, boasting 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 project will not only enhance Al Khail Road but also bolster the capacity of adjacent roads supporting Sheikh Zayed, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, and Emirates roads.

The RTA outlined seven key locations along Al Khail Road slated for enhancement:

Zabeel: Construction of a three-lane bridge to improve traffic flow towards Abu Dhabi.

Meydan: Construction of a two-lane bridge to streamline traffic towards Deira.

Al Quoz 1: Construction of a two-lane bridge to improve connectivity towards Abu Dhabi and internal roads.

Jumeirah Village Circle: Construction of a two-lane bridge to enhance connectivity towards Deira.

Al Jaddaf: Addition of a new lane to increase capacity towards Deira.
