million dirhams. Projects are completed in the first quarter of 2021.
His Excellency Engineer Yousef Saleh Al Suwaiji, Chairman of the Sharjah Roads and Transport
Authority, stated that the project comes within the Authority’s development plan, and to
complete all its accomplishments in previous years, including the first stage of converting the
emirate’s fields into intersections, and it is also considered part of the goals of the
Emirate’s strategic plan, which came in implementation of the directives of His Highness Sheikh
Dr. Sultan bin Mohamed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah.
He pointed out that converting the squares into intersections controlled by traffic lights is
one of the integrated solutions that the authority relies on to reduce the problems of traffic
jams, and achieve its vision in providing a safe and smooth traffic path.
