Dubai RTA awarded the contract for the construction of the 25 kilometer road as part of the second phase of the Academic Road development project. A new eight-lane highway will run parallel with Mohammad Bin Zayed and Emirates roads, connecting Dubai-Al Ain Road with Al Yalayis Road.
The highway is an extension of Academic City Road and will serve newly developed areas such as Wadi Al Safa Remram, Liwan, The Villa, and so on. In addition, the project entails the construction of a bridge at the crossroads of the Academic City Road with Latifa Bint Hamdan Road.
The bridge will be situated close to the entrance of Global Village and a signalized intersection underneath the bridge will also be constructed. A temporary roundabout will be constructed at the intersection with Al Qudra Road and another signalized junction with Hessa Road. The road extension will stop at Al Yalayis Road. Al Yalayis Road connects Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road with Emirates Road, going to Dubai Investment Park, spreading at nine kilometers and sporting four lanes in each direction. The Academic City Road extension is expected to be completed in 2017.
