Construction of truck rest area on Dubai's Emirates Road complete by 55%
The project supports the Dubai Silk Road strategy encapsulated in the 50-Year Charter of Dubai, and the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative.
Construction of the Trucks Rest Stop Project on Emirates Road is halfway through, a top Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.
Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors of the RTA, said it is the first integrated trucks stop zone that meets the basic and daily needs of heavy vehicle drivers.
"The project developer, Al Sahraa Group, had completed 55 per cent of the project works including preliminary processes preceding the construction phase such as obtaining no-objection certificates, levelling the land, protecting utility lines, and obtaining the final building permit from the concerned authorities," said Al Tayer.
"The station spans five hectares and includes 100 parking slots for trucks. By establishing this station, the RTA will be able to meet the rising demand for truck stops considering that trucks make more than 145,000 trips and lift about three million tonnes every day in Dubai," he added.
"The project supports the Dubai Silk Road strategy encapsulated in the 50-Year Charter of Dubai, and the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative. The UAE is a prominent station in the Economic Silk Road and is the gateway to the Middle East and Africa in the project that links the commercial markets in the region," said Al Tayer.
Meanwhile, the RTA has constructed 18 temporary trucks rest stops on the several vital roads in Dubai with a total capacity of 538 parking slots.
"Sites of two permanent truck rest stops have been finalised - the first in Jebel Ali Industrial Area 3 next to the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, and the second at Al Ayyas, near the Emirates Road. It will be tendered this December to the private sector. These two stations will have all the requisite facilities and services needed by drivers and trucks. A study is currently underway for an additional site at Dubai Industrial City. It will be released in a tender after the completion of the technical and investment studies," concluded Al Tayer.
