Road upgrade projects around DIC to be completed next month

The ongoing work on the upgrade of the roads in and around the Dubai International City (DIC) is scheduled to be completed by next month. This was announced by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Sunday.

A major fraction of the second phase of the ambitious project is already completed. The project is being carried out over two phases and is anticipated to have an exceptionally positive influence on the traffic situation. Moreover, with the completion of the first phase, the ease in the flow of traffic is already becoming apparant, with commuter travel times considerably reducing.

The project involves several aspects like road widening, inclusion of new flyovers, multi-tier interchanges and sophisticated signalised junctions around DIC, Dragon City and Warsan Village. The project is estimated to be beneficial to over 110,000 residents and 200,000 visitor.

The project is being carried out in cooperation with Nakheel, the developer of DIC. In the wake of the expansion of the Dragon Mart, the project is expected ease the traffic scenario. Phase two of the project includes improvisations made on Al Manama Street in addition to upgrades of many junctions.
