In February 2019, RTAannounced that construction work on the road, which was constructed in collaboration with International City's master developer Nakheel, was 83% complete .

According to HE Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the board of executive directors of RTA, Phase 2 of the project included improvements to Al Manama Street, and the widening of junctions such as the extension of Al Manama-Al Warsan 1 Street.

RTA has also constructed bridges and signalised intersections as part of improvements on connecting roads.


Under the project, the Al Manama Street-Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road flyover that runs above Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road has been broadened from three to four lanes in each direction, increasing its capacity of 4,500 vehicles per hour to 6,000.

Al Manama Street has been widened in the sector from the entrance of the International City up to Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Street, from two lanes to five. RTA expects the expansion work will increase the intake of the street from 3,000 vehicles per hour to 7,500.
