Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded a $4m (AED14.9m) contract to build a road connecting Sheikh Rashid Street to Culture Village. 

Construction works will be implemented in collaboration with Dubai Properties Group, with the project due for completion in Q1 2018.

Through the provision of additional entry and exit points, Culture Village will be linked with the surrounding roads network at Al Jaddaf through the project. 

Revealing additional project details, Eng Maitha bin Adai, the CEO of RTA's traffic and roads agency, said: "A one-lane entry and exit point will be constructed at Sheikh Rashid Street before the Al Garhoud Bridge in the direction of Deira.

"Project works include lighting as well as shifting and protecting the existing utility lines. It is part of a host of projects planned and endorsed for easing the traffic flow in line with the RTA’s strategic objectives and goals." 

The development is intended to ease traffic congestion on Al Khail Road, which is witnessing a significant rise in the number of heavy vehicles coupled with growing infrastructural works of projects and buildings in the surrounding, WAM reported.
