Dubai: The Airport Road in Dubai will see more detours from the end of this month as expansion work on the busy thoroughfare gathers steam.
Diversions have been in place on the Airport Road since June last year, facilitating road works that will transform the road into a freeway with four flyovers and an underpass.
The new diversions will be in place at Marrakech and Casablanca intersections, with work on bridges at the intersections of Nad Al Hamar, Marrakech and Casablanca gathering pace.
According to Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), 30 per cent of the work on Rashidiya and Casablanca interchanges have been completed, while the completion rate has reached 25 per cent on the Nad Al Hamar and Marrakech interchanges.
The Dh404-million project is part of a series of infrastructure and mass transit upgrades in Dubai, compatible with the Dubai Strategic Plan 2021. More info
