The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has awarded a contract for the Al Qudra-Jebel Ali Lehbab Roads Junction.

The project will ease the traffic flow on both Al Qudra Road and Jebel Ali Lehbab Road and provide a corridor for traffic to Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA) and Abu Dhabi, bypassing downtown areas.

Improvements on Al Qudra Road have been managed over several phases, with the initial phase covering the widening of the road from one to three lanes in each direction over a 12-km sector.

Works also included a cycling lane and a rest area for cyclists comprising facilities and shops for renting bikes and accessories, a fully equipped clinic, a cycling gate, a rest area for cyclists, and a bicycle parking stand.

Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors of the RTA, said: "The junction will be upgraded to a multi-tier flyover providing free traffic movement in all directions.
