The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed road construction works in 16 residential districts of Dubai at a cost of AED835 million, says Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the (RTA).
In April, the RTA will open new internal roads at Al Mamzar and Al Nahda 1 at a cost of AED118 million, he said, and added that work is under way on the construction of roads in Nad Al Sheba 4, at a cost of AED89 million, which is set for completion by the end of the year.
These projects are part of the five-year plan for constructing internal roads in several Dubai districts at a total cost of about AED1 billion, he said.
"Next month, RTA will open the internal roads project at Al Mamzar and Nahda 1, which comprise four districts, North and South of Cairo Street, and North and South of Baghdad Street, at a cost of AED118 million," he said.
The project covers the construction of single-lane and dual carriageway streets along a 20-kilometre stretch, revamping all existing road networks in the area. The project works also included the installation of a new light signal on Amman Street to streamline the flow of traffic in the entrances and exits of Nahda 1,
