Dubai Silicon Oasis launches roads improvement project.
Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA) has launched the 'Roads Improvement' project, which aimsto expand the existing infrastructure by nearly 3km.
Designed to reduce traffic congestion in and around the high-tech park, especially the one adjacent to Dubai Academic City Road, the project will be executed at a total cost of Dhs28 million. Expansion works will include a filter for one of the exits from DSO heading onto Academic City Road.
The project also includes increasing the number of exits from DSO onto Academic City Road to three with the construction of a new exit to allow easier access to the main roads around the hi-tech park.
Furthermore, a new lane is being added to the exit from Academic City Road onto Dubai-Al Ain Road due to the bottleneck traffic being caused at peak hours. The project is set for completion by end-2015.
Speaking on the project, Abduljalil Abbasi, Vice President -- Planning & Design at DSOA, said: "The roads expansion works have been actioned in response to suggestions received about the traffic building up on the exits from DSO leading onto Academic City Road and Dubai-Al Ain Road. The step also conforms to our DSOA 2021 Strategy that aims to provide optimum convenience to residents and tenants through the provision of enabling and smart infrastructure at the hi-tech park.
"The 'Junctions Improvement' project will cover high-traffic areas around the premises, as well as the internal DSO roads in its sweep. This will mean less travelling time for DSO residents."
