Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has recently opened five temporary Trucks Rest Areas on several Dubai highways. The first of these five rest areas is located on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road in the direction of Abu Dhabi at Nad Al-Sheba, and two rest areas on Emirates Road; one in the direction of Dubai at Warsan, and the other in the direction of Abu Dhabi at Al Tay. The fourth is on Al Ain-Dubai Road at Al Lisaili and the fifth on Lehbab Road  at Al Lisaili. 

“In line with RTA’s plan to enhance highway traffic safety, RTA had completed the Dubai highways temporary Trucks Rest Areas project. The latest batch of five rest areas opened has a combined capacity of 190 trucks, which brings the overall capacity of RTA-constructed rest areas to 510 trucks,” said Eng. Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic & Roads Agency, RTA. 

“This is the final phase of the project aimed at providing convenience for truck drivers. By completing the construction of the last rest area on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road in the direction of Abu Dhabi, opposite Arabian Ranches, RTA has accomplished the construction of 18 highway truck rest areas compatible with the safety standards and capacity requirements. These rest areas are positioned near service centres such as refueling stations to ensure the delivery of basic services to drivers. The project contributes to realising RTA’s vision of Safe and Smooth Transport for All,” added bin Adai.
