Dubai's (PTA) finalises 90% of Tripoli Street Improvement Project
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 27 - 05 - 2019

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) had announced that 90 percent of the work on Tripoli Street Improvement Project had been completed and was expected to open to the public next month.
The 12-km street, which links Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road, runs parallel to the recently re-opened Airport Street Improvement Project, said the RTA in its statement.
Work has also been completed on the flyover between Tripoli St. and Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street.
The completion rate has reached 92 per cent in the bridge at the intersection of Tripoli-Nouakchott Streets, and 75 per cent in the tunnel at the intersection of Tripoli-Algeria Streets (Mirdif-Warqaa), said the statement.
“The project will enhance the link between Dubai and Sharjah, ease traffic movement and streamline the access to Warqaa and Mirdif districts,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA.
“It will increase the traffic flow to about 12,000 vehicles per hour in both directions (6,000 vehicles per hour per direction) and reduce the traffic volumes by 30 per cent,' stated Al Tayer.
“Upon completion, the project will act as a parallel road to the Al Amardi– Al Khawaneej and Al Awir- Ras Al Khor traffic corridors. It will also improve traffic safety at the intersections with Rabat and Nad Al Hamar Streets near Bel Remaitha Club,” he added.
According to him, the contractor has completed the extension of Tripoli Street from the intersection with Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street up to Emirates Road and the bridge linking the extension of Tripoli Street with the Emirates Road in the direction of Sharjah.
“The project includes the widening of Tripoli Street over a 6.5-km stretch from the intersection with Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road (nearby Mirdif City Centre) up to Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street. It also includes the construction of a new six-lane 5.3 km-long street from the intersection of Tripoli-Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan streets up to Emirates Road. Thus, the entire corridor will span about 12km,” he added.
“The project covers improvement of interchanges starting with upgrading the junction of Tripoli-Algeria Streets to a tunnel of three lanes in each direction to serve the inbound traffic from Rabat Street heading to Tripoli Street, besides upgrading the existing intersection to a signalized junction,” said Al Tayer.
“The completion of these works will cut the waiting time at the intersection from three minutes to less than a minute. The project also includes upgrading the existing roundabout at the intersection of Tripoli-Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan streets into a flyover to ensure free movement of vehicles in all directions,” he added.
