Dubai-Sharjah Commute Gets Easier As New Project Work Finishes On Al Ittihad Road

Driving in Dubai is bliss; however, when it comes to commuting for work daily, traffic congestion can really get annoying at times. And if you commute daily between Dubai-Sharjah for work, getting stuck in traffic definitely causes a lot of stress. However, it’s time to relax and celebrate since your journey is about to get smoother. It is so because Sharjah’s Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) has announced the completion of a new traffic improvement project on Al Ittihad Road. Read on for all the deets.

SRTA took to Twitter to share this news and shared a video announcing the addition of a 600-meter lane, modification of service road sidewalks, and addition of parking spaces to further augment the overall traffic experience. The additional 600-metre connects to the Khulafa Al Rashideen Bridge, whereas the Al Khan exit gets an extra lane.

This new development will ease the commute between Dubai and Sharjah and ease traffic on the arterial road. Besides this, Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority has awarded a contract for the implementation of internal roads and lighting works in the 1,2,3,4 and 5th industrial areas of Al Qusais. The project is done in the implementation of the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, to develop and improve basic infrastructure in residential and industrial areas.

Besides, it will increase the road intake from 500 cars per hour in both directions, to 1,500 cars per hour in both directions, as well as reduce travel time by 60%.
