RTA Awards Contract for 3-lane Al Khaleej Street Tunnel Project

RTA has awarded a contract for constructing the 3-lane Al Khaleej Street Tunnel Project in Dubai, following the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and under the oversight of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council.

The tunnel, extending from the end of the ramp of Infinity Bridge in Deira to the intersection of Al Khaleej and Cairo Streets, features six lanes stretching 1,650 metres, capable of accommodating up to 12,000 vehicles per hour in both directions.

RTA’s Al Shindagha Corridor Improvement Project, spearheaded by Mattar Al Tayer, aims to enhance Dubai’s infrastructure. Phase 4 includes the Al Khaleej Street Tunnel, spanning 1650m with six lanes, easing traffic flow from Infinity Bridge to Deira. The project revamps Cairo and Al Wuheida Streets, benefitting communities like Abu Hail and Al Mamzar. Additionally, a 4.8km Sheikh Rashid Street upgrade features three bridges and pedestrian crossings. Completed works include bridges to Dubai Islands and the iconic Infinity Bridge, symbolizing Dubai’s limitless aspirations. These initiatives aim to reduce travel time and accommodate future growth, enhancing Dubai’s global appeal.

RTA also completed the Falcon Intersection Improvement Project, featuring the construction of two major bridges on Al Khaleej Street. The first bridge extends 750 metres northward, and the second one stretches 1075 metres southward. The bridges have 6 lanes in each direction with a capacity of up to 24,000 vehicles per hour in both directions. Works include the construction of a single-lane bridge extending 250 metres for the right-turn from Khalid bin Al Waleed Road to Al Khaleej Street with a capacity of 1600 vehicles per hour. Works underway include a two-lane 500-metre tunnel for left turns from Khaled bin Al Waleed Street to Al Mina Street capable of handling 3200 vehicles per hour in addition to a surface signalised intersection linking Al Khaleej Street with Al Ghubaiba and Khaled bin Al Waleed Roads.
