Future interchange providing full movement on SZR is currently in RTA’s 2020 plans
Residents living in the luxury rent a villa in Dubai area Al Barari and neighbouring areas have raised concern over the increasing number of motorists who drive in the opposite direction to enter the community from the direction of Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road from Sharjah.
The increasing number of violations is due to the lack of entrance points to the community from one side of Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road.
Currently, there are only entry and exit points to Al Barari when heading towards Abu Dhabi, and an exit point from the community on the opposite direction.
As a result residents heading home from the Jumeirah side of town are driving down the exit point in the middle of the highway to get home, in order to avoid driving to the Al Ain exit and taking a double loop back. This is causing accidents both on the highway and at the exit points, as cars are usually driving out of the one-lane exit, while others are trying to drive in.
RTA has plans on the way to answer entrance issues
To answer concerns newspaper Gulf News contacted the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to find out future road plans in the area.
“A future interchange providing full movement on Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road is currently in RTA’s 2020 plans, which shall provide an adequate entrance to Al Barari development. Meanwhile RTA will study additional safety measures to improve the safety in the area,” said an RTA spokesperson.
Al Barari is an environmentally-conscious community with a focus on sustainability and living in harmony with nature. Known for its luxury properties including spacious apartments and villas for sale in Dubai, Al Barari has succeeded in becoming one of the most exclusive and eco-friendly developments in the UAE.
