Dubai and Sharjah residents, you can say goodbye to the nasty Sharjah-Dubai Traffic by the end of 2018.
The UAE’s Minister of Infrastructure and Development, Dr. Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif al-Nuaimi, said that several projects are in the works aiming to eliminate current traffic jams.
One such project is al-Budaiya Bridge, stretching 4km long at a whopping cost of $54.452 mn, which equates to Dh200 mn. Nuaimi said that the project is 75 percent complete and is set to open in August, reported The National.
Trucks will also be receiving their own lane on Emirates Road to reduce traffic congestion, said the minister.
Meanwhile, in line with governments’ 2021 plan, there are ongoing talks about adding a fourth highway to complement al-Ittihad Road, Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road, added Nuaimi.
