المصدر: دبي - البيانالتاريخ: 01 سبتمبر 2012








تنجز هيئة الطرق والمواصلات بدبي مشروع شارع الخيل بتكلفته نحو مليار و925 مليون درهم بنهاية ديسمبر المقبل، والذي يعد من أكبر المشاريع التي تقوم الهيئة بتنفيذه حالياً، ومن أضخم المشاريع الحيوية في قطاع الطرق بالإمارة ونظراً لضخامته فقد تم تقسيمه إلى أربع مراحل، وتبرز أهمية المشروع كونه يمثل امتداداً لمعبر الخليج التجاري، حيث تراوحت نسب الإنجاز بين 88 إلى 96 ٪ في بعض التقاطعات الرئيسية وتهدف الهيئة من خلاله إلى إيجاد محور طرق مساند لشارعي الشيخ زايد والإمارات، اللذان يستحوذان على حجم كبير من الحركة المرورية العالية التي تمر عبرهما.

تقاطعات رئيسية

وقال مطر الطاير رئيس مجلس الإدارة والمدير التنفيذي للهيئة انه سيتم افتتاح جميع الجسور الرئيسة في تقاطعات مشروع توسعة شارع الخيل في نهاية العام الجاري، على أن يتم الانتهاء من الجسور الفرعية المتبقية في النصف الأول من عام 2013، مؤكداً ان العمل في بعض التقاطعات وصل إلى مراحلة النهائية، حيث تراوحت نسب الإنجاز بين 88 إلى 96 ٪. وتشمل المرحلة الأولى من مشروع توسعة وتطوير شارع الخيل، التي تقدر تكلفتها بنحو 575 مليون درهم، وتهدف إلى تسهيل حركة المرور في الاتجاه من شارع الخيل إلى شارع الإمارات والعكس، إضافة إلى تأمين حركه المرور لمشاريع التطوير العقارية في المنطقة.

Here is an update on the Al Khail Road project based on my observation from the above image taken on 9 September 2012.

1. All interchanges that lead into Al Quoz (Including its industrial areas) are now operational with only minor work remaining.

2. It appears as if the Emirates - All Khail Road Interchange will finally connect with a road that goes to Jumeirah Golf Estates and Dubai Sport City as asphalt is being placed on the bridges that serves that area.

3. Good progress is still being made on the Umm Suqeim- Al Khail Road Interchange.

On another note, it also appears as if progress is being made with the Sport - Motor City Interchange and at the World Trade Centre Bridges Project.

From my daily passign I would say the following:

The interchanges of Al Khail Road with Al Quoz are indeed nearly done. I guess they will be fully operational by November or December.

The interchange with Umm Suqeim Road will take at least another 5 month but the speed is good too (the main bridge is finished and the ring is 2/3 done).

The interchange of Hessa Road with Emirates Road also has some progress although I believe it will take at least another 6 month to finish it (the ring is still not open).

The bridge project at Dubai World Trade Center makes progress but at moderate speed. I would say another year before they are done.

Mohammed bin Rashid endorses Extension of Business Bay Canal Project, costing Dh1.5b

Directives issued to complete the project in 2 years







Roads and Transport Authority – Mohammed Al Munji:
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has endorsed the Extension of the Business Bay Canal Project, including modifications of roads & bridges required for extending the water canal from Sheikh Zayed Road up to the Arabian Gulf. HH also directed to have the project completed in two years.

H.E. Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), said: “The Extension of the Business Bay Canal is one of the key strategic projects undertaken by the RTA and encompasses the extension of the water canal from the Business Bay up to the Arabian Gulf in a waterway stretching 2.8 km in length and width ranging from 80 to 100 meters. The Canal crosses Sheikh Zayed Road (before Al Safa Interchange) and passes across the Safa Park, Al Wasl Road, and Jumeirah 2 to terminate at the Arabian Gulf.

“RTA will use the Soil-Cement method to construct the banks of the Canal; an innovative engineering solution that adds aesthetic appearance to the Canal and the surroundings. This Canal will ensure the replenishment of water supplies in the entire Business Bay Canal automatically without any need for pumps.

“The estimated cost of the Project is 1.5 billion dirham and due to the enormity of the project scale, and the need to expedite construction works, the project has been divided into three contracts. The first covers drilling & landscaping works as well as the construction of marine transit stations. The other two contracts relate to road & bridge projects, and the project is set for completion early 2015,” stated Al Tayer.

“The Project warrants the construction of bridges across the water canal rising 8.5 meters at the key intersecting roads i.e. Sheikh Zayed Road (6 lanes in each direction), in addition to Al Wasl Road Road and Jumeirah Road (3 lanes in each direction in both roads). These bridges will allow free marine navigation in the Canal 24 hours a day, and marine transit stations will be constructed along the water canal to ease the mobility of the public and encourage the use of mass & tourist marine transit system.

I read this in AB today, but didn't see these maps. Thank you Imre. What a mess this is going to be. And we all know, it won't be done in 3 years. 2015 seems way too early for this project to be finished. For it to look like in their imagination, it'll take 20 years at least.

The latest dumb idea in a long list of them. Half of the City is a wasteland of unfinished buildings and projects - so having come up witha spare Dh1.5 Bn what do they do? - they dig up one of the few finished areas.

If we have another downturn halfway through this project like we did with the Tram then it will be decades before they can finish this one.

I see your point, but they have to finish what they started no matter how painful it is going to be. On the positive side this extension will create 2km of waterfront plots, and more importantly completes BB. Just imagine how many yachts will be crusing around the area when this is completed.

There is no shortage of waterfront plots in town, what is in short supply are areas that are finished. As for finishing BB, most of that is a wasteland with abandoned and unfinished projects that this money would have been better spent on.

I don't think it's as bad as Abu Dhabi, the Corniche is packed with jet skis whenever I go to the capital

Saw it this morning



Does anyone know if it's related to the Business Bay canal? or is it some other work?

I think it would be too early to be the canal, presumably the work would need to be put out to tender first.
