The Airport Improvement Project includes four junctions. The first was Rashidiya junction which includes the construction of two bridges on the Airport Street of three lanes in each direction.
The second includes Nad Al Hamar Streets Junction through constructing a two lane ramp to serve the traffic from Nad Al Hamar Street to the Airport Street.
The third junction includes Marrakech junction through the construction of two bridges of three lanes in each direction along with a ramp leading to Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport without waiting at the light signal.
And the fourth covers Casablanca Street junction through the construction of an additional single lane ramp to serve the traffic from the Airport Street in the direction of Casablanca Street.
Al Tayer pointed out that the opening of all bridges at the four junctions increases the intake of the Airport Street by 5,000 vehicles per hour.
