Dubai: The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has completed the construction of internal roads in Al Qouz 4 residential area, it said on Sunday.
The project in District 359 involved the construction of eight-kilometre-long roads, roadside parking spaces, street lighting, road markings, and light signals, the RTA said in a statement.
Road upgrade works in the area had started in May 2012, and the project’s completion has provided means for safe and smooth traffic and pedestrian movement.
Works completed also include rainwater drainage systems and the protection of existing utility lines in the area.
The District is bordered by Al Waha Road to the north, Al Khail Road to the east, Latifa Bin Hamdan Road to the south, and Al Asayel Road to the west.
An official said more projects are underway in Al Qouz, including the R 911 Project at Al Qouz 2, which covers an area of 225 hectares in Area 355 comprising a 3.7-km-long dual carriageway, seven-km-long two-way streets with roadside parking spaces, seven roundabouts, and street lighting works in addition to storm-water drainage and sewage networks.
Maitha Bin Udai, CEO of RTA’s Traffic & Roads Agency, said: “Al Qouz 3 is also experiencing the construction of 3.3-km-long one-way streets along with roadside parking spaces, and 5.3-km-long roads along with associated logistical services.
“These projects are part of roads network improvement policy in place tailored to cater to the rising urbanisation and demographic growth rates in the emirate of Dubai; which is a key strategic objective of the RTA.”
