The Dubai-Al Ain Road Improvement Project is built at a cost of AED2 billion. The project spans 17 km from the intersection of Emirates Road to the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road along the Dubai-Al Ain Road, and it included widening the road from three to six lanes in each direction which improves six key junctions. The project improvement works also included the construction of four two-lane ramps at the junction of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road extending 2,600 metres as well as the construction of service roads on both sides of the road. This increased the total capacity of bridges at the junction to 36,000 vehicles per hour in all directions.
The project benefits a population of 1.5 million people living and working in the neighborhood on both sides of the road, serves 25 universities and colleges and 27,500 students, doubles the road intake from 12,000 to 24,000 vehicles per hour in both directions, and slashes the travel time on the Dubai-Al Ain Road from the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road to the intersection of the Emirates Road by 50% from 16 minutes to eight minutes during peak time which solves traffic snarls that used to extend about two kilometres.
