Al Tayer :65% of Wafi Interchange completed, opening next April

The contractor has completed almost 70% of construction works in the flyover along with lighting & utility works, and road works completion rate has reached 35%. The project, which costs about AED88 million, comprises the construction of a three-lane bridge branching from Oud  Metha Road (nearby Latifa Hospital) in the direction of the Sheikh Rashid Road, and from there to the Sheikh Zayed Road and Al-Saada Road (through the overpass leading to the Dubai World Trade Center). The new bridge spans 700 meters, and has a capacity to handle 3300 vehicles per hour. Project works also include lighting, signage, rainwater drainage, and utility lines.

“The construction of Wafi Interchange is part of RTA’s strategy to improve & upgrade main roads network in the Emirate of Dubai, and Wafi Interchange is very important as it links with main roads, and intersects with the Sheikh Rashid Road and the Oud Metha Road. The Interchange is also characterized by high vehicles density, with traffic lanes overlapping with the curves of the interchange,” stated Al Tayer.

“When completed, the project would eliminate the overlapping traffic at the interchange, and ensure a smooth vehicular movement in various directions. The traffic would run smooth from Oud Metha Road in the direction of Al Ain to the East and from Sheikh Rashid Road in the direction of Oud Metha to the west (Umm Hreir, Oud Metha). These solutions are part of the overall solutions developed by RTA for coping with snarls experienced by the Emirate,” continued Al Tayer.
