Government of Dubai – Roads and Transport Authority (RTA)
June 2014 – Phase 4
September 2011 – Phase 3B
New and improved
bridges and underpasses
The Parallel Roads Project was a series of major infrastructure works commissioned by the RTA to provide a strategic link between Sheikh Zayed Road and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road. The work was commissioned to help upgrade the primary infrastructure and alleviate the heavy traffic flow in this densely populated area of Dubai.
Al Naboodah Construction Group was awarded the works for two key contract phases, 3B and 4.
This phase involved extensive service networks, both new and refurbished, plus the construction of a four-lane dual carriageway. All the new and improved road networks were also connected via a series of signalised junctions, bridges and underpasses.
While the design of Phase 4 was similar to that of Phase 3B, the location was within the heavily industrialised part of the city which made conditions very challenging due to heavy traffic congestion and the myriad of existing services that needed to be protected, or relocated, to facilitate the new construction.
