The UAE Ministry of Infrastructure Development has announced that work was progressing well on three key projects worth Dh295 million ($80.3 million) in Dubai and Sharjah which were expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Of these, two of the projects in Sharjah - the Phase Two of Sharjah-Dhaid-Masafi E88 Federal Road Development work and Sharjah Police Headquarters Project - will be completed by the end of this year, while the Lesaily School Project in Dubai is set for completion in 2021.
Located in Al Bataeh region of Sharjah, the Dh82.118 million E88 project will see the expansion of existing local road network. It will also feature one lane in each direction and link Intersection No. 10 on the E88 Sharjah-Dhaid Road and E102 on the Sharjah-Meleiha Road.
Moneera Abdulkareem, the Director of the Southern Region at the Ministry, said the project involves the removal of the existing road, as well as the construction of a new two-lane road and a new bridge over the new Khorfakkan Road, in addition to the implementation of the latest traffic safety requirements.
On the Dh172-million Sharjah Police Headquarters Project, Abdulkareem said it was 64 per cent complete and due for handover this year.
The nine-building development is being implemented as per the "Project 360 Initiative" using virtual reality and augmented reality, she stated.
On the Dubai school project, Abdulkareem said the Lesaily School complex is being built over a 9,500-sq-m area at an estimated cost of Dh44.477 million. The ministry is supervising the project which will be ready by the fourth quarter of 2021.-TradeArabia News Service
