RTA to fix the traffic problems around Wafi!

If you have ever tried to reach Wafi at evenings during the week you know what a huge step forward this is. I have been standing there for ages in the past. Looking much forward to see ease of Traffic there.

wafitrafficnewThe Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has commenced construction works in Wafi Interchange Improvement Project comprising the construction of a 700 metre-long bridge of three lanes in each direction, stretching from Oud Metha Road (nearby Latifa Hospital) in the direction of the Sheikh Rashid Road, and heading towards Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Saadah Road (elevated bridge leading to the Dubai World Trade Center).

The underlying objective of the bridge is to minimise the overlapping traffic and ensure better traffic flow in all directions.

“The new bridge will offer smooth movement for vehicles inbound from Oud Metha Road and outbound eastward to Al Ain exit.

New road linking JLT to Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Road …

Tomorrow will see finally the opening of a new connection between Sheikh Zayed Road at the JLT junction (Interchange 5.5) with SMBZ Road nearby Al Houdh R/A. The Road is named  as Qarn Al Sabkha Road.

You can see below where this road goes exactly:


Phase II of this project will be opened by the end of March 2015 where Al Saadah Road will be linked with Ibn Battuta Mall district, besides completing some bridges and roads in the neighborhood which will mainly serve JLT, the Gardens, Furjan, Jumeirah Islands, and Jumeirah Park by linking them with Sheikh Zayed Road and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.

Additional Al Khail First Road would be extended to Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Road, Discovery Gardens and Ibn Battuta Mall and would include a link to Jafza in the future as per a RTA spokes person.
