The Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) has developed a major road intersection at a cost of Dh1 million in the emirate.
"The Sheikh Khalid Bin Sultan Al Qasimi project has been completed ahead of schedule," said Mohsin Balwan, director of road maintenance, SRTA.
Apart from ensuring smooth traffic flow, the new intersection - considered to be one of the most important infrastructure projects - will give boost to the economic growth and meet residents' needs, pointed out Dr Balwan. "The developed intersection lies in Al Khuzamia and Al Abar areas on one side and Al Shahba and Samnan areas on the other side."
The old concrete road barriers have been removed, while new pavement blocks and tiles have been installed.
This is besides the regular pavement and painting of the road intersection and roads around it, Balwan underlined.
"The traffic lights have been repositioned and new traffic signs installed to ensure the highest safety levels for all road users."
The SRTA, in February this year, developed the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Sultan Bu Alian road intersection at a cost of Dh1.2 million.
"Sharjah RTA is working on a comprehensive, ambitious plan to develop the entire road network in the emirate, let alone regular maintenance as per the latest international standards."
Sharjah Roads and Customers Call Centre is reachable 24/7 at 600525252, he said. "Our staff attendants are ready to address all feedbacks, inquiries, remarks and complaints."
