RTA completes bypass road project

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed the work of all phases of the Dubai Bypass road project.

The road offers alternative corridor to Emirates road and Shaikh Zayed road without having to drive through urban areas. The Bypass road extends from Sharjah’s Al Saja’a interchange to the exit point from Dubai to Abu Dhabi.

The 70km road was constructed in different phases at a cost of around Dh1 billion. The Dubai Bypass road is set to link up with Al Faya road, known as Trucks road in Abu Dhabi in the third quarter of this year.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA had the following to say,

“The Dubai Bypass road is a key road corridor built by the RTA and offers an alternative highway to motorists to drive through Dubai without entering the city roads,”

“By opening Phase IV of the project, the RTA has completed the opening of all phases of the road, which comprises six lanes on each direction, the RTA would continue upgrading several key and arterial road projects in Dubai as part of an integrated road-widening plan under a strategy aiming to provide advanced services to residents and to ensure safe and smooth transport.” said Al Tayer
