The 3km road takes motorists along on a new route towards Mohammad Bin Zayed Road
Sharjah: Authorities on Thursday opened up a new route for commuters heading to Dubai.
In a statement issued by the news agency Wam, the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) announced the completion of a three kilometre road adjacent to the Dubai border, which was built to ease traffic congestion in Industrial Areas 15 and 17.
The new road takes motorists from the area behind Sharjah English School, located opposite Sharjah University City, and continues up until Oud Rakan Bridge on Maliha Road.
Motorists will then have access to Mohammad Bin Zayed Road.
The double-lane two way road was built at a cost of Dh49 million, according to Engineer Yousuf Saleh Al Suwaiji, chairman of SRTA, and has a total width of 7.3 metres wide with a concrete barrier in the middle.
“The road provides safe and quick access to the main roads in the region, and eases transport of people and cargo,” said Al Suwaiji.
He said the project follows the government’s vision in achieving the highest happiness indicators for residents and citizens, adding that they had applied the highest international standards and practices when developing the road network in the emirate, which ensures an efficient and safe traffic flow.
For comments or complaints, the public can contact the SRTA at the authority’s hotline 600 525252.
