UAE-based Wade Adams Contracting has won the US $78 million (AED289 million) contract to build the third phase of the Dubai Bypass Road project. Work is expected to begin this week.

Speaking to Construction Week, a spokesperson on the project said: "Wade Adams has won the contract but is waiting for the go ahead from the Roads and Transport Authority to begin construction work."

"The work involves the construction of a 26km road starting from Jebel Ali's Al Hibab Road up to the outskirts of the emirate of Abu Dhabi. It will be a six-lane dual highway running in both directions."

Construction work also includes constructing three camel cross points which could be used as U-turn exits, water drainage conduits, utility pipes, metal curbs, safety rails and lighting works.

Phase three is part of the bigger Dubai Bypass Road project which, when completed, will run from the outskirts of the emirate of Sharjah and extend to the road linking up with the outskirts of the emirate of Abu Dhabi. It will also provide a link with Jebel Ali Airport (Dubai World Central) and Dubai Industrial City.

Phases one and two of the project are already under construction.

Work on the first phase of the road began on 25 February 2006, with a total cost of around $98 million, and runs from Al Raweeiya Interchange on the Dubai-Al Ain Road and extends 24km up to Jebel Ali's Al Hibab Road. It included the construction of a dual carriage highway of six lanes in each direction.

Work on phase two began in January this year and will cost about $80 million. Work included widening the existing road, which starts from the outskirts of Sharjah and extends 23km across Dubai-Al Ain Road up to Al Raweeiya Interchange, from two to six lanes in each direction.

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is the client.
