(RTA) has initiated several changes in streets linked with works in progress of Route 2020 Project. Changes include traffic diversions in several roads & streets of the Emirate passing through residential & commercial complexes. They also include areas under development by Nakheel Properties, especially in Ibn Battuta Street and surrounding areas. Changes are undertaken as part of works for completing Route 2020 Project.
Traffic diversions under this phase cover areas surrounding Ibn Battuta Street namely: Discovery Gardens, The Gardens, Al Furjan and other districts developed by Nakheel Properties. The traffic diversions result in reducing the number of lanes from three to two in each direction along Ibn Battuta Street between Street 2 and Street 6. Work has started in May 2017 and will continue until the project completion. Changes also include widening Street 1A parallel to Ibn Battuta Street such that it will be a dual carriageway of two lanes in each direction instead of a street of a single-lane in each direction; which will enhance the traffic flow. Works will start in August 2017 and continue until the project completion.
Start on: May and August 2017
