Three new roads cut travel times and improve safety
The UAE has opened three major new roads that cut travel times, improve traffic flow and enhance safety at a cost of Dh1.9 billion.
They include a road linking Mleiha in Sharjah with Al Shuwaib in Abu Dhabi and another connecting Hatta in Dubai with Masfout in Ajman and on to Ras Al Khaimah.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, announced the initiatives on Monday and toured the projects with Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs.
Planes from Al Forsan, the UAE Airforce’s aerobatic display team, soared overhead as they inspected the developments in Sheikh Mohammed’s striking Mercedes G-wagen.
