Dubai’s RTA improves 2km stretch of Algeria Street

Cycling tracks and pedestrian zones inducted

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed the Algeria Street Improvement Project in Dubai City.

The 2km renovated street is from the intersection of Algeria Street and Al Khawaneej Street (South) to the junction of Tunis Street (North) at Al Muhaisnah (1) and Al Mizhar (1).

The project is part of the Authority’s efforts to upgrade road infrastructure across Dubai emirate, improve road traffic flow, and revitalise residential areas witnessing high population growth.

Hamad Al Shehhi, Director of Roads, Traffic and Roads Agency, Dubai’s RTA, said: “The scope of the project includes widening Algeria Street from the intersection of Street 11 near Al Khawaneej Street up to the intersection with Tunis Street as well as Streets 27 and 31.

“Works included increasing the number of lanes of Algeria Street from two to three in each direction. As such, the road’s capacity has grown from 6,000 vehicles to 9,000 vehicles per hour in both directions,” he said.

Al Shehhi added: “The project includes transforming the existing roundabout into a signalised junction to provide left turns, thereby serving the residential communities of Muhaisnah and Al Mizhar.

“Algeria Street was also improved by introducing cycling tracks and designated pedestrian zones stretching from Street 11 to Street 27 on Algeria Street’s left side and from Street 27 to Tunis Street on the right side.

“These improvements contribute to improving road quality and reducing the travel times from Al Khawaneej Street to Tunis Street from 15 minutes to seven minutes during peak hours, marking a reduction of over 50%.

“Works also include paving of a service road along both sides of Algeria Street to link with the service roads for Streets 27 and 31, and the provision of parallel parking spaces for villas on both sides along with angle parking in areas adjacent to the junction of Algeria Street with Streets 27 and 3,” Al Shehhi concluded.
