Dubai has published two more massive road projects to provide easy access to International City and the Bluewaters Island, a new tourist attraction off the cost of Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR).
The projects which will cost Dh700 million have been approved by the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
According to the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, one of the road projects is the Entrance Project for the Bluewaters Island and the second road project is to provide additional access to International City. The RTA will grant the project construction contract in the second quarter of the year that will cost around Dh500 million.
The new bridge and service roads will guarantee free traffic movement to approach the Bluewaters Island featuring an array of spectacular waterfronts.
The Island includes the Dubai Eye – set to be the world’s largest Ferris Wheel. The Island will also host retail, residential, tourist and recreational amenities additionally to a 5-star hotel, a various cast of residential preferences, and an open market surrounded by a walk fitted with outdoor dining outlets.
On the other hand, the International City Entrances Project expands from Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road to Nouakchott Road and from Al Aweer Road to Al Manama Road. It includes construction of a flyover at the intersection of Al Aweer and Nouakchott roads to give a free left turn from Nouakchott Road to Al Aweer Road in the route of Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road.
The project also includes expanding the existing entry point to International City off Al Aweer Road by adding an extra lane to accommodate traffic volumes without impacting traffic movement. This also includes transforming the existing traffic signal on Al Manama Road into a flyover allowing free turns in all directions.
