The construction of Hamad bin Abdullah Road has begun in the emirate of Fujairah, according to the Ministry of Infrastructure Development.
The six km road will extend from the Nujaimat Roundabout at the end of Sheikh Khalifa Road (Dubai-Fujairah Highway) to the Federal Road E99 (Eastern Coast Highway), the Ministry said.
Ahmed Al Hammadi, Director of Roads Department at the Ministry, said the construction would cost AED250 million, with the first phase being completed in six months.
'The entire project will be finished by the third quarter of 2019 and will include three lanes on each side, as well as bridges, tunnels, traffic signals, side parking lots, service roads and pedestrian crossings,' he noted.
'The road will help increase traffic safety in the emirate,' he said.
