Industry: Transportation / Logistics announces that a new highway connecting Fujairah and Dubai is due to open this July which will greatly improve transport links between the two emirates.

The road has been completed at a cost of AED 1.6 billion and runs for a distance of 45km as it stretches from Fujairah’s central region to Dubai. The Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Road starts at Fujairah City’s entrance and crosses Al Gazirmi, Asfeeni, Wadi Sahm, Kadra, Mamdooh and Ras Al Khaimah’s Shawka valleys. The road finishes in the Hamda area by Sharjah’s Maleeha Road.

The United Arab Emirates’ northern regions are currently experiencing considerable investment as the country looks to bolster the infrastructure in this area and as part of this increased developments are being made to the water and electricity networks in Fujairah.

The port has also seen a series of expansions as it increases its capacity as a hub for oil and by 2016 the emirate should see the completion of a refinery costing $3billion and capable of producing 200,000 barrels each day.

Visitors staying in Fujairah hotels will be able to use the road to connect to Dubai when the official opening is expected in July but an exact date hasn’t been set yet.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: “The creation of the new highway will allow for faster connections and increased mobility due to the three lanes running each way. General trade and business will be improved and this will have an effect on hotels which will also see occupancy rates rise.”
