On his official Twitter handle, Sheikh Hamdan posted, “Our aim is to turn Dubai into the world’s top city in urban planning.”

The widened road has now over a dozen lanes in some sections.

The project will control traffic snarls that used to stretch about two kilometres, stated the Road and Transport Authority.

Sheikh Hamdan said during a press release, “Dubai persists in advancing the execution of infrastructure development plans desired at enhancing human welfare and catalysing sustainable economic growth.”

“It is also part of our wider strategy to change Dubai into the world’s best place to live, work, and visit and strengthen our eagerness to meet future requirements in one of the fastest-growing cities worldwide.”

The Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project stretches 17 kilometres starting from the intersection of Emirates Road to the corner of Ras Al Khor Road along the Dubai-Al Ain Road.

Its construction work comprised of widening the road from three to six lanes in every direction and constructing six main interchanges alongside bridges and ramps stretching 11.5 kilometres.

The new development serves 25 colleges and universities where around 27,500 students are studying. The recent improvements will double the intake of the roads that is from 12,000 to 24,000 vehicles every hour in both the directions.

It will also cut the travel time on the Dubai-Al Ain Road from Ras Al Khor Road to the corner of the Emirates Road from 16 minutes to eight minutes at peak times.
