Infrastructure Advancement in the UAE: Reducing Travel Time Between Dubai-Sharjah

It has been a sigh of relief for motorists travelling from Dubai to Sharjah! The RTA has completed the Tripoli Road Improvement Project. It aimed at reducing transit time between Dubai and Sharjah by 8 minutes. 

This massive upgrade has enhanced Dubai’s traffic system, thereby improving access to critical areas such as Mirdif districts and Al Warqaa. It has been a significant contribution to the sustainable development of Dubai. The successful implementation of the project has resulted in more accessible and hassle-free transportation between the emirates.

Tripoli Street Improvement Project

Dubai will be the host city of World Expo 2020 and has announced a budget of over AED 45 billion for various infrastructure-related projects. Therefore, numerous projects have been initiated in accordance to improve mass transit facilities in Dubai. One of the recent advancements includes the Tripoli Road Improvement Project which has widened the Tripoli street over 6.5 Kilometers.

This project also introduced a new road spanning from the intersection of Academic city to the Emirates Road, which totals the overall length of the corridor to about 12 kilometres. The intersection now has three lanes in each direction. Also, the project has allowed a parallel corridor to Al Amardi - Al Khawaneej Street, including Al Awir-Ras Al Khors roads.
