The Follow up Committee of Initiatives of UAE President has approved the awarding two contracts for the construction of the Ras Al Khaimah ring road and phase 1 of Khor Fakkan western ring road at a total cost of $118.4m (AED 435m), according to the Emirates News Agency.

The $108.4m (AED 398m) Ras Al Khaimah Ring Road is a 32km arterial extension of the proposed Umm Al Qaiwain express highway.

The project, which is scheduled for completion in 2 years, will see a road built with 3 lanes in each direction separated by a 12 metre wide median barrier that could be used in the future to add a fourth lane in both directions.

The 4km Khor Fakkan western ring road will serve as an alternative to vehicles going to and from Khor Fakkan Port and other cities in the country.

The $9.5m (AED 35m) road will have two fully lit lanes in each direction.

The Following up Committee, headed by deputy presidential affairs minister, Ahmed Juma Al Zaabi, was briefed about the two projects by the technical subcommittee overseeing progress of the projects being implemented under the initiatives.
