In a bid to upgrade the roads of the emirate, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) Sharjah has carried out maintenance projects worth Dh15 million.
Yusuf Saleh Al Suwaihi, RTA Sharjah chairman, said they set a strategic plan to develop the roads, equipping them with all the infrastructure services and facilities needed. "We adopted a comprehensive plan whereby all roads are efficiently operated and maintained on a regular basis as per the latest international benchmarks. The developed infrastructure is an essential asset for developing, easing and attracting investments."
Al Suwaihi said they maintained and paved roads in 10 different areas in the emirate. "These include the Sheikh Rashid Bin Saqr Al Qasimi Road between the areas of Abar and Dasman, Al Ghubeiba and Samnan, along with the road connecting Intersection four with Tariam Imran Square at the Qaraen area. Also the Road 23 at Al Nahda area, Maliha Road connecting Industrial Areas two and five and an internal road in Industrial Area 12 were refurbished.
"The RTA Sharjah also paved a number of roads in Industrial Area 6. The square between Sharjah and Ajman, the Oud Rakan Bridge Square at the Institutes area, and several roads in Kalba, Khor Fakkan, and Diba Al Hisn were also maintained, paved, and developed." 
Certain amendments were made to the U-turns of some of the roads that were developed, said Al Suwaihi. "Ten pedestrian crossings were added to different areas in the emirate to ensure pedestrian safety."
The maintenance and development projects were in line with the directives of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, he added. 
He said that RTA Sharjah is more than ready to respond to customers' feedbacks. "Our call centre is reachable 24/7 at 600525252 for inquiries, remarks and complaints."
