Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has completed infrastructure upgrades on Streets A11 and A26 in the Al Mizhar area. The project involved expanding the streets from two to four lanes in both directions over a total distance of 6.8km. This expansion has doubled the road capacity from 1,200 to 2,400 vehicles per hour, significantly reducing congestion during peak times.

These enhancements are part of RTA's 2024 traffic solutions, designed to improve the quality and efficiency of Dubai's road network. The aim is to ensure smoother traffic flow and better serve the needs of residents, schools, and businesses in the rapidly growing area.

Additionally, the project has added 551 parking slots to accommodate the needs of local schools and residents."
