Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the completion of road and lighting improvements in the Al Qusais Industrial areas 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the UAE city. 

The project is said to have tripled the road capacity from 500 to 1,500 vehicles per hour in both directions, marking a 200% rise. 

The enhancement project included the construction of 32 roads spanning 10km and the installation of streetlights along 43,000m.  

RTA Board of Executive Directors chairman and director general Mattar Al Tayer said: “This internal roads project aligns with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and the instructions of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council.  

“These directives call for upgrading the infrastructure of residential and industrial areas to support the growing population and urbanisation in the emirate, foster well-being, and promote happiness.” 

Mattar Al Tayer noted that this development has also improved connectivity with four main streets: Amman Street, Beirut Street, Aleppo Street, and Damascus Street.
