The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has granted a contract for the Hessa Street improvement project in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The Hessa Street development will improve 4.5km of land from Sheikh Zayed Road to the Al Khail Road intersection.
Valued at Dh689m, the contract will see the expansion of the road from two to four lanes in each direction on Hessa Street, hoping to accommodate 16,000 cars an hour as a result.
Four major intersections will be revamped along Hessa Street, namely Al Khail Road, Al Asayel Street, First Al Khail Street, and Sheikh Zayed Road.
Additionally, a 13.5km-long cycling track along with two bridges will be developed as part of this project.
The first and second bridges will cross Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road, respectively, with each stretch measuring 5m wide, with 3m reserved for cyclists and e-scooters and the remaining 2m for pedestrians.
