Worth $47.3m (AED174m), the 42km road will extend from the Al Badi intersection to Sheikh Khalifa Road in Fujairah, WAM reported. 

Hassan Jumaa Al Mansouri, under-secretary at the infrastructure authority, said "a creative solution" was required to ensure project implementation without impacting the heavy traffic flow noted in both areas it links.
