Al Houdh Interchange on Mohammed bin Zayed Road 80 per cent complete
The construction work on the Al Houdh Interchange at the intersection of Sheik Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Al Yalayis Road is 80 per cent complete.

This includes road works, lighting and utility lines.

The project on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road is set to open by the end of November this year.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), said: “The project comprises transforming Al Houdh roundabout from a signalised junction to a flyover offering smooth traffic flow in all directions. It covers the construction of four east-west bridges along the stretch of Al Yalayis Road, comprising three lanes in each direction with a total length of 600 meters.”

Work is currently underway in widening a four km sector extending from Jebel Ali-Lehbab roundabout northwards up to Al Houdh roundabout, and is set for completion with the opening of the flyover in November this year.

The project also includes constructing a service road in both directions of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road in a sector extending four km in each direction from Al Khail Road interchange to Al Houdh roundabout to ease the entry/exit from and to nearby areas. These parts of the project are set for opening by early October this year.
