While announcing the opening, engineer Abdulla Darwish from Highway Projects Department said the opening of LuLu Intersection would smoothen traffic flow in the area, especially for commuters to and from Old Airport via D-Ring Road.
He added that about 30% of work on the D-Ring Road development project is over, and that the complete delivery is expected in the first quarter of 2022.
The opening of LuLu Intersection is the first achievement of D-Ring Road development project.
The project includes development of Fereej Al Ali Intersection (known as Al Tadamon Interchange), Nuaija Intersection (The Mall), and LuLu Intersection.
This expansion will enhance traffic capacity of the interchanges and largely reduce traffic congestion in the area, especially at Fereej Al Ali Interchange (Al Tadamon Interchange), which witnesses heavy traffic.
The improvement works within the project also covers the development of rainwater drainage networks to raise the efficiency of drainage in the area, by constructing a stormwater drainage tunnel with a total length of about 3.5km.
