Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - Project to ensure smooth flow of traffic for Expo visitors.

The Roads and Transport Authority has announced that Phase 6 of the roads leading to Expo 2020 project will open on Sunday.

According to tweets, this project -which includes an improved intersection of Emirates and Expo Roads- will be undertaken in response to directives from His Highness Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai to develop roads and transport networks for the upcoming Expo 2020.

RTA Director Mattar Al Tayer described the project as one of the biggest currently undertaken by the RTA to meet the needs of hosting the Expo 2020 in Dubai. He noted that the massive project has been divided into six phases, costing a total of about 3 billion dirhams.

The project aims to ensure a smooth flow of traffic for Expo visitors and to serve future projects in the area.

Last August, RTA opened Phase 3 and 4 of Roads Leading to Expo Project. It included constructing two intersections at Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road with each of Expo Road and Al Yalayes Road. Two flyovers on Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street at the Dubai Investment Park have been upgraded. Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street has been widened from two to five lanes in each direction, and bridges constructed under both phases covered 17 km.

Besides Phase 6, which will be opened tomorrow (Sunday), and Phase 3 and 4, which had been opened earlier this year, work is currently underway in Phase 1, 2 and 5. Phase 1 and 2 covers transforming the existing R/A at the intersection of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Expo Road into a flyover; ensuring free traffic movement in all directions.

Works underway include constructing direct entry/exit points to Expo 2020 from Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road to ensure smooth traffic flow to and from the site of Expo. The total length of roads being constructed under both phases is about 43 km. 

RTA has developed a plan addressing the needs of hosting Expo 2020 with the aim of ensuring smooth mobility for visitors of Expo.
