Opening Phase 1 of 7th Interchange, and Al Yalayes and Al Asayel Road Projects
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) opened Saturday 15 September, the 1st phase of the 7th Interchange Improvement Project as well as Al Yalayes and Al Asayel Roads Improvement Project.
The two projects will enhance the link between Sheikh Zayed Road (SZR) and both Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road. They will ease the traffic flow on the SZR by diverting part of the traffic to Al Yalayes Road and on to the parallel roads such as Al Asayel Rd, Al Khail Rd, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Rd and Emirates Rd. It will also boost the movement of goods from and to Jebel Ali Port, and provide additional entry/exit points for community developments in the area such as Al Furjan, Discovery Gardens and Jebel Ali Development Project.
"The projects have been undertaken in implementation of the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai to keep pace with the upswing seen by Dubai, meet the rapid urbanisation of the Emirate and bring happiness to people.
“The Projects will step up the capacity of Al Yalayes Road to almost 20 thousand vehicles per hour in both directions. They will also cut short the transit time between the 7th Interchange on the SZR and the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road to as low as 4 minutes,”
