Phase 6 of Roads Leading to Expo 2020 project

Wade Adams Contracting are proud to announce that Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) have opened Phase 6 of Roads Leading to Expo 2020 project (EM 729), including an improved intersection of Emirates and Expo Roads. The project has been undertaken in response to the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to develop roads and transport networks to support the hosting of Expo 2020 in Dubai. The overall aim is to ensure a smooth traffic flow for Expo visitors and serve future projects in the area.

HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, described the project as one of the biggest road projects currently undertaken by RTA to meet the needs of hosting Expo 2020 in Dubai. He noted that due to the massive scope of the project, it had been divided into six phases, costing about AED 3 billion in total.

“This project phase included the construction of a bridge extending 1.4km and roads stretching about 8 km. Accordingly, the number of lanes of Expo Road have been increased from 4 to 6 lanes in each direction over a sector of 3 kilometres, besides upgrading a 5-kilometre sector of Emirates Road. Works included transforming the existing R/A at the intersection of Emirates Road and Expo Road into a flyover enabling free movement in all directions. Expo Road has been elevated to make a bridge of 4 lanes in each direction. Service roads, each of two lanes, have been constructed on both sides of the main road. Turns have been provided to ensure smooth flow of traffic from Emirates Road in the direction of Abu Dhabi and vice versa, and from Expo Road in the direction of Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road. The project will ease the traffic movement from Jebel Ali-Lehbab northward to the Dubai-bound Emirates Road, and from Expo Road southward to the Abu Dhabi-bound Emirates Road,” explained Al Tayer.

“The project works also included transforming the previous R/A at the intersection of Emirates Road and Expo Road into a flyover ensuring free traffic in all directions. Accordingly, the road capacity increased from 10,000 to 23,700 vehicles per hour. It will also improve the traffic flow to Expo, Dubai South and Al Maktoum International Airport, besides slashing the transit time as a result of removing the R/A, and the traffic signal. It will also treble the vehicular capacity of the road and ensure smooth traffic flow on main roads.”
