The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai will be opening Saih Al Dahal Road Improvement Project next month to increase road capacity by 2200 vehicles, i.e. from 1800 to 4000.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai will be opening Saih Al Dahal Road Improvement Project next month to increase road capacity by 2200 vehicles, i.e. from 1800 to 4000.

The Saih Al-Dahal Road Improvement Project will join Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park with the Saih Al-Salam Road, increasing road capacity in each direction.


RTA has highlighted that the old single-lane road will be removed and replaced by a dual carriageway extending 11km.

This will consist of two lanes in each direction, along with three roundabouts and a median to ease the movement of vehicles in each direction.

The new road will also be linked with the entry points of Al Qudra Lakes.

The Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority, Mattar Al Tayer said, “The project strives to expand the road intake from an existing 1800 vehicles to 4000 vehicles in each direction to adjust the continued increase in traffic volumes and ease the mobility of locals as well as visitors to the oasis on both sides of the road, desert areas and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park.”

“The project complements a sequence of projects finished by RTA in the area, like the 23 km long Dubai Cycling Track, which connects with the existing cycling route at Saih Al-Salam running alongside Al Qudra Road at the Gateway of the Dubai Cycling Track in the direction of the Emirates Road. It links with the Latifa bint Hamdan Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Al Barari district and up to Nad Al Sheba community.”

“The cycling track at Saih Al-Salam, which stretches about 115 km, is fitted with many luxuries, including outlets for renting bicycles and accessories, a fully furnished clinic, and ten rest places along the cycling path fitted with seats and bike racks,” added Al Tayer.


Around nine R/Ss (roundabouts) are being made at junctions to control the flow of traffic and increase the traffic safety of the neighbourhood.
