Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the construction works of all phases of the roads leading to the Expo 2020 site have been completed. 

RTA completed the last two phases of the road construction works on 15 February. It included the construction of a flyover linking Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and Expo Road as well as two flyovers on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. Work also included bridges extending 7km and roads extending 43km in addition to 3 interchanges.

According to the RTA, the development of these roads leading to the Expo 2020 site is one of the biggest road projects undertaken. 
The project was divided into six phases to ensure its completion way ahead of time. 

His Excellency Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA said, “The project will increase the capacity of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road from 8,000 to 60,000 vehicles per hour and slash the transit time on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road from Al Houdh Interchange to the entry of Al Maktoum Airport from 35 to 6 minutes.
