The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has opened a major signal interchange (I/C) on Beirut Al Nahdah Roads to ease the traffic flow on Beirut Road from and to the Airport Tunnel.

The launch of Al Nahdah Roads is a part of the Beirut – Al Nahdah Interchange Project that focuses on increasing the intake of the interchange to more than 20,000 vehicles per hour.

The project will also develop the northern part of the Airport Tunnel extending from Al Quds – Beirut Interchange up to Al Nahdah – Beirut Interchange as a vital arterial road.

The construction of the flyover through Al Nahdah Road and an underpass for Beirut Road has transformed the interchange from a signalised junction to a separate-level I/C.

The construction of the master project was started in February 2007.
