The new Green Road fights the traffic jam in Dubai
Ajman’s Etihad Road Bridge project is now open as per the Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MOID).
The first phase of the project is valued at $14.1m and is part of the ministry’s efforts to fulfill the needs of people and achieve the happiness of road users, a statement from MOID said.
Engineer Abdulrahman Al Mahmoud, deputy director of the Southern Region at the Ministry said the project will help reduce traffic jams by 75%. The project is located at the intersection of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque.
Phase One of the project will increase the length of Etihad Road from the intersection of Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Al Jamaa Road up to the Al Zawra Roundabout by approximately 2.5km, resulting in three traffic lanes in each direction, explained Al Mahmoud.
The launch of a series of projects by the MOID 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 Al Mahmoud.
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. He added that this is part of the MOID’s strategy to reduce emissions by 30%, leveling operations by 45%, electricity consumption by 50%, wasteful building materials by 70% and construction times.
