The Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) has opened a new 3km road built to ease traffic congestion in Industrial Areas 15 and 17, located next to National Paints Bridge in Sharjah, UAE.

The dual-lane road, built at a cost of $13.3m (AED49m), is 7.3m wide.

The road opens a new route for commuters heading to Dubai, said a Gulf News report.

The SRTA said the road takes motorists from the area behind the Sharjah English School, located opposite Sharjah University City, and continues up until the Oud Rakan Bridge on Maliha Road.

Motorists will then have access to Mohammad Bin Zayed Road.
