The Ministry of Infrastructure Development today inaugurated the sloping road that will serve the road users commuting from Sharjah towards Dubai.
The road is part of Al Badea project implemented by the ministry with the aim to develop the intersection of Emirates and Maliha roads in the Emirate of Sharjah, at a total cost of about AED200 million.
Along the road, three lanes of two kilometres length have been added before the sloping road to accommodate those wishing to travel to the Emirate of Dubai.
Eng. Hassan Al Mansouri, Assistant Under-Secretary for Works sector at the ministry, stressed the keenness of the ministry to complete the project as scheduled.
He noted that Dr. Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Al Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development, had issued instructions at the time when the work began to take measures to complete the project on time by the beginning of the academic year 2016 – 2017, to ensure smooth traffic flow and reduce traffic jams at peak hours.
He added that the ministry’s strategy is to link the Emirate of Sharjah with the federal road network, thanks to the directives of the leadership to ensure a decent life for all citizens and residents alike.
