ABOUT THE
BUILD

Completed in April 2008, this scheme was one of three major infrastructure contracts that provided a strategic link between Sharjah and the Northern Emirates to the new International Airport at Jebel Ali and on to Abu Dhabi. This vital route was a key part of the government’s strategy to remove HGV traffic from the heavily-congested Dubai Ring Road in addition to accommodating future growth.

The works initially consisted of four lanes of dual carriageway construction, later upgraded to six lanes, with inner and outer shoulders separated by a guard-rail along a 24 km stretch.

In addition to the major earthworks, a comprehensive network of primary utilities was installed in each of the adjacent carriageways. The contract terminated at the crossing of the Dubai – Al Ain highway and at this location a full cloverleaf-grade separated interchange was constructed of post–tensioned box girder bridges and soil wall abutments. A comprehensive lighting network of high mast columns provides illumination over the full 24km.
