Looking at the cost of of this road upgrade, at what point does it make more sense to leave the roads alone and work on extending the metro or Etihad Rail to help with this congestion? Isn't most of that traffic from the Sharjah <-> Dubai commute?

RTA awards contract for roads to ‘Jewel of the Creek’ costing AED375 m

Quote:






Saturday, May 06, 2017

The Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), chaired by HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, has awarded a contract for the construction of tunnels & roads leading to the Jewel of the Creek Project. The awarding of the AED375 million contract was coordinated with the Dubai International Real Estate Company (DIRE). The Jewel of the Creek iconic project, which sits between Al Maktoum and the Floating Bridges, has been designed as a landmark tourist destination adding further prominence to the city and the tourist profile of the area.

RTA has signed MoU with the Dubai International Real Estate Company for funding the construction of tunnels and roads leading to the project. HE Mattar Al Tayer signed the MoU for RTA, and HE Khalil Al Sayegh, Director General of DIRE, signed it DIRE. The roads project is set for completion during the first half of 2019.

“The project in which construction works have recently started, is primarily aimed to provide entry & exit points linking with the ground and basement access points of the Jewel of the Creek Project. Specifically, it provides roads, subways and slipways linking the ground level and the basement parking of the project with the roads & transport network of Baniyas Road to the north, and Al Ittihad Road to the East. The Project also includes the construction of a footbridge crossing over Baniyas Road and lighting works along with the protection and shifting of the existing utility lines,” explained Al Tayer.

“The northern access points comprise entry points to the basement parking for traffic bound to the west of Baniyas Road and the traffic inbound from Al Maktoum Bridge slipway. It also includes exit points for the basement parking through a tunnel heading eastward to Baniyas Road & westward to Baniyas Road, in addition to exit points to the north-east leading to the eastern slipway from Al Maktoum Bridge to Baniyas Road. It includes surface entry points from & to the eastern basement parking, and single-lane tunnels for the basement parking stretching from the Floating Bridge and Baniyas Road to the East. The Project also includes the construction of roads for the surface entry points for the traffic inbound from Al Ittihad Road to the south, and single-lane tunnels to the north for the parking to provide exit in the direction of Abu Dhabi and Al Ittihad Road to the north.

“The entry & exit points leading to the Jewel of the Creek have been designed to meet the needs of this futuristic architectural masterpiece enhancing the Dubai skyline and posing as a majestic urban development on the shores of the Dubai Creek,” added Al Tayer.

It is noteworthy that the Jewel of the Creek, which spans an area of 125,675 square meters, comprises a 5-star hotel with 438 rooms, four residential towers comprising 756 serviced apartments, 20 restaurants, a man-made lake, a domestic beach stretching along the project, and a marina capable of accommodating 65 boats. It also hosts a 4-star hotel with 403 rooms, another tower for a 3-star hotel with 405 rooms in addition to two connected residential towers comprising 389 serviced apartments featuring an Arabic-Islamic design, a mini mall and a parking space for about 6000 vehicles.

Emaar: $48m bridge in Dubai is 90% complete

Quote:




Emaar has announced that more than 90% of the work for the $48 million Al Khail and Financial Centre Bridge is complete, and that work is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Running from Al Khail Road to the Financial Centre Road, the project is being developed in conjunction with Dubai’s RTA. Work on-site is in full swing, the developer added.

The project is vital to accommodate Emaar’s massive expansion of the Dubai Mall, which will see it add 75,000sqm of retail space, along with an additional 25,000sqm of car parking. The expansion includes the construction of a ‘Fashion Avenue’ beside the existing mall, further expanding the biggest shopping and entertainment destination in the world, which receives more than 100 million visitors per year.

“The project is aimed at easing the traffic flow along the Financial Centre Road as well as the surface intersections by reducing the vehicular density on the intersections leading to the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard,” explained Mattar Al Tayer, the director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors of RTA, speaking after visiting the site of the project, which starts from the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road and Al Khail Road.

“It will step up the capacity of the road to as many as 4,500 vehicles during peak hours, serve a host of development projects, and alleviate the pressure on the existing roads network,” he added.

The bridge consists of two lanes in one direction, for a distance of 1,270m, with width ranging from 11m to 15m. It is built on individual pillars and crosses the Dubai Water Canal. Project works also included lighting and the shifting of impacted infrastructure services, such as water, electricity, irrigation, drainage and communication lines.

According to Al Tayer, the existing roadworks will be widened by the addition of two lanes in a 480m-long sector, so as to ensure the smooth flow of traffic from the intersection of the Dubai-Al Ain Road at Al Khail Road, and along the Upper Deck of the Financial Centre Road. An entry point will also be provided to the parking terminal of the Dubai Mall expansion project.
