Sheikh Zayed Road Double-Decking Project
This project is in Dubai and involves double-decking of Sheikh Zayed Road. It is understood the elevated roadway will be for long-distance traffic travelling across the emirate and the number of entry and exit ramps will be limited. It could be delivered using private finance if tolls are charged for using the road. Dubai already operates a toll system, known as Salik, on Sheikh Zayed Road and other key roads and bridges across the emirate. The upgraded interchange 5.5 will provide access to the new Bluewaters Island development off the Dubai coast, near to Jumeirah Beach Residences. The main component of the 900-day project involves building a 1.4km-long, 25-metre-wide flyover that will take traffic from Sheikh Zayed Road onto the Bluewaters Island. It comprises two main components. The first is a feasibility study for the double-decking that will run from the Dubai creek area and Sheikh Rashid Road all the way through to Jebel Ali Port a distance of up to 35 kilometres. The second part of competition involves submitting a fee for the design and construction supervision of the new elevated roadway.
