The RTA has been working on several projects that all seek to create a smoother drive for the emirate's motorists. Earlier this week, new dedicated bus lanes were announced for six busy streets: Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, 2nd of December, Al Satwa, Al Nahda, Omar bin Al Khattab, and Naif. These are set for completion between 2025 and 2027.
