RTA opens Al Qudra-Lehbab Roads interchange development project in UAE


Dubai’s Road Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the opening of Al Qudra-Lehbab Roads interchange development project in UAE.

The project involved the construction of a flyover to provide free traffic in all directions and improve the traffic flow on both Al Qudra and Lehbab Roads.

RTA said that the Lehbab Road is a strategic traffic corridor which provides a traffic solution for motorists heading to Expo Road, JAFZA, Abu Dhabi and vice versa, without entering downtown areas.

The project also included the construction of a separate bridge for cyclists crossing over the road.

RTA has completed 10 projects under the improvement of Lehbab and Expo Roads more than 55km-long sector extending from Lehbab Police Station up to the intersection with Sheikh Zayed Road.

Improvement works also involved widening the road from 2 to 4 lanes in each direction and construction of a flyover at the 8th Interchange of the Sheikh Zayed Road.

RTA director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors Mattar Al Tayer said that the works also involved the construction of two bridges on the collector road beside the existing two bridges as well as ramps to serve right, left and U-turns.

Tayer added that the project also included widening connecting streets, construction of a cycling bridge across the flyover to increase the road capacity to 4400 vehicles per hour and provide free traffic in all directions.

Tayer concluded: “RTA has undertaken improvements of Al Qudra Road over several phases starting with widening the road from 1 to 3 lanes in each direction over a 12 km stretch from Lehbab intersection to Bab Al Shams roundabout, including the new bridge.

“Later improvements covered widening 2 bridges to 3 lanes in each direction and constructing crossings for vehicles and camels on Al Qudra Road.

“Works also included an 18 km cycling track and a rest area fitted with facilities and shops for bike rental and accessories, a fully equipped clinic, Cycling Gate, rest area, 10 shaded areas and bike racks.”
