Lighting works, rainwater drainage systems, and utility lines comprise MEP works at the Al Qudra-Lehbab Roads Intersection project, which developers say is now two-thirds complete.
HE Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors at the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), explained that works are upgrading the junction from intersecting roads into a flyover, enabling free-moving traffic in all directions.
“Lehbab Road is a key traffic corridor offering an alternative link to Expo Road, JAFZA and Abu Dhabi-bound traffic and vice versa without going through downtown areas,” HE said.
Widening of Al Qudra Road has provided a key passageway, starting from Jumeirah to Umm Suqeim Street, which has also been improved by the construction of two bridges of three lanes in each direction.
The first bridge passes over the Eastern Parallel Road (Al Asayel Street), and the second over the Western Parallel Road (First Al Khail Road), easing traffic to Al Qudra Road and further to Al Qudra Bridge, crossing Emirates Road up to Seih Assalam.
“RTA has accomplished 10 projects under the Improvement of Lehbab and Expo Roads over a 55km-long sector extending from Lehbab Police Station up to Sheikh Zayed Road,” added Al Tayer.
“Improvement works included widening the road from two to four lanes in each direction and constructing a flyover at the 8th Interchange of the Sheikh Zayed Road comprising 24 bridges.”
