Academic City Road Extension Project - Phase I

Construction of the initial phase of the Extension of the Academic City Road Project has started. The project is set for completion in the second quarter of 2016, costing about 67 million dirham.


The project comprises of two parts; the first covers the extension of Hessa Road in a sector stretching 4 km with two lanes in each direction. It starts from the entry point of Remraam Residential Project to the existing R/A at the entry of Dubai Sports City; which will be converted to a signalized junction to ease the mobility of residents from and to the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. This road will cut short the journey time from 20 to 5 minutes, thus becoming one of the key arterial roads in the area.


The second part of the project comprises of the construction of a road linking the extension of the Academic City Road with the Emirates Road over a 2.5 km-long stretch, having two lanes in each direction. The project is considered the first phase in the construction of the Academic City Road Extension Project, which starts from the Dubai – Al Ain Road and to Al Yalayis Road.
