Road upgrades to ease congestion in Dubai's Al Mankhool


Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed traffic improvement works on three main streets in Al Mankhool area.

The project included modifications at the intersections of Kuwait Street, 12A Street and 10C Street.

"Al Mankhool area is notorious for its heavy traffic. RTA has made several enhancements, including reducing the right-in and right-out lanes from two to one at the junction of Kuwait Street and 10C Street and incorporating a U-turn movement on 10C Street to improve traffic safety and decrease accidents," said Hussain Al Banna, CEO of the RTA's Traffic and Roads Agency.

He added that the project also involved relocating the U-turn on Kuwait Street to lengthen the storage lane.

"This change will enhance traffic flow and cut down delays by 30% at the junction of Kuwait Street and 12A Street. It will reduce queueing and waiting times for vehicles. Moreover, the removal of the overlapping traffic movement from 10C Street to 12A Street will improve safety on Kuwait Street," Al Banna explained.

These traffic improvement works are expected to benefit around 130,000 residents and school-goers in Al Mankhool and its surrounding areas.

Al Mankhool is a commercial hub, home to numerous companies operating in the hotels and hospitality sector, as well as hospitals and various retail and wholesale outlets.
