The Dubai To Sharjah Commute Is About To Get MUCH Shorter Thanks To This New Road


Tired of the long, arduous drives between Dubai and Sharjah?

Well, starting tomorrow- your commute life is probably going to change- and for the better.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the newly-upgraded Tripoli Street will open on Thursday.

This means less transit time between Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Emirates Road

…to EIGHT minutes!

Since the new developments mean there is now a 12-kilometer traffic corridor, the drive will take less than its usual traffic.

If you drive between the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and the Sheikh Xayed Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road by 64%- this means the drive will take from its usual 11 to 4.5 minutes.



RTA’s Director says this will reduce the traffic volumbe by 10%- a great start!

“The project will channel about 2,000 vehicles every hour during peak periods from Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road to Emirates Road and reduce the traffic volumes on the MBZ Road by 10 per cent. This will translate into reducing the trip to the entrance of Sharjah to 12 minutes, and cutting the waiting time at the intersection of Tripoli-Algiers Streets (Al Warqaa-Mirdif) from three minutes to less than a minute,” – Mattar aal Tayer, Director-General of RTA.
