The Ministry of Infrastructure Development has announced the opening of Etihad Road Bridge Project in Ajman, located at the intersection of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque.
 
The project, whose first phase is valued at Dh52 million ($14.1 million) is part of the ministry’s development efforts to fulfill the needs of local people and achieve the happiness and prosperity of road users.
 
Engineer Abdulrahman Al Mahmoud, Deputy Director of the Southern Region at the Ministry, said that the project will help reduce traffic jams by 75 per cent.
 
The Phase One of the project will increase the length of the Etihad Road from the intersection of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Al Jamaa Road up to the Al Zawra Roundabout by approximately 2.5 km, constituting three traffic lanes in each direction, stated Al Mahmoud.
 
The project, he stated, will serve vehicles coming from Ajman and heading to Ras Al Khaimah.
 
The launch of a series of projects by the ministry reflects the keenness of the UAE’s leadership to achieve prosperity and provide decent lives for Emirati citizens, by constructing vital roads around the country that will solve traffic problems and prevent traffic jams, said the minister.
 
Al Mahmoud pointed out that the ministry was using quality construction materials and creating green roads systems to achieve sustainable development and protect the environment.
 
This comes as part of its startegy to reduce emissions by 30 per cent, levelling operations by 45 per cent, electricity consumption by 50 per cent, wasteful building materials by 70 per cent, and construction times by 10 per cent, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
