Construction work for a road worth $68.1m (AED250m) has begun in Fujairah. 

The UAE's Ministry of Infrastructure Development is building the 6km road that will extend from the Nujaimat Roundabout at Sheikh Khalifa Road (Dubai-Fujairah Highway) to the Federal Road E99 (Eastern Coast Highway). 

All works are due to be completed by 2019, with the road's first phase expected to be ready in six months. 

Ahmed Al Hammadi, director of the Ministry's roads department, said: "The entire project will be finished by the third quarter of 2019 and will include three lanes on each side, as well as bridges, tunnels, traffic signals, side parking lots, service roads and pedestrian crossings." 

The road is expected to boost traffic safety in Fujairah, Al Hammadi added, according to WAM.
