A New Flyover Has Opened In Ras Al Khor To Reduce Travel Time In Dubai Creek

Great news for people who travel around Dubai Creek Harbour as a new flyover has just got opened. The Ras Al Khor flyover will connect Nad Al Hamar road with Ras Al Khor road to increase the number of cars on the road.

Meaning that travel time for those travelling between the two areas should be significantly reduced.

The new flyover is part of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA)’s Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Corridor Improvement Project, which will increase road capacity to 30k vehicles.

Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the board of executive directors, said the “Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Corridor Improvement Project is one of the strategic road projects that aim to enhance the efficiency of Dubai’s infrastructure.”

Along with the Ras Al Khor flyover, the Ras Al Khor Road will be widened from three to four lanes in each direction over a four-kilometre sector.

There will also be a number of new bridges leading to Dubai Creek Harbour extending 1730m, with a capacity of about 10,600 vehicles per hour.

Upon the completion of the two phases, the capacity of Ras Al Khor Road will jump to 10,000 vehicles per hour, and the travel time will drop from 20 minutes to about seven minutes.

Phase one construction started back in December 2022 and has since been completed.

The second phase is now under way and it’s predicted that the improvements will help the traffic flow for commuters around Dubai Creek.
