Major road works to ease traffic in Khawaneej


Work on the Dh500 million Khawaneej Corridor will begin shortly as the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) awarded a contract for the construction of the mega project that also includes improvement of Mushrif Park.



Further enhancing the connectivity to the Dubai International Airport the project will create an airport network through a link with Shaikh Zayed Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road and Emirates Road.

The Khawaneej Corridor and Mushrif Park Project covers the construction of three main junctions at Khawaneej Street and Al Amardi Street. Work includes construction of an underpass at Khawaneej Street with three lanes in each direction, along with a surface junction.

Among the upgrade is conversion of the existing roundabout of Khawaneej-Al Amardi Streets into a signalised junction.

The project will provide a direct link between Al Awir and Khawaneej to ease the movement of residents in both directions.

“The project aims to accommodate the current and projected growth in the traffic volumes over the next years. It provides a direct link between Al Awir and Al Khawaneej to ease the movement of local residents in both directions,” said Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA.

Other construction work includes the improvement of the intersection of Al Amardi Street and Emirates Road through the construction of a flyover on Emirates Road and a footbridge near the Arabian Centre at Khawaneej Street.
