The RTA has opened a new junction at the intersection of Al Majasimi and Al Wasl Road, located between Umm Suqeim Street and Al Thanya Street, it was announced on Tuesday.

Besides the installation of signals to ease vehicles' movement, a new traffic stream was added at the intersection.

Now, left turns are facilitated from Al Majasimi Street onto Al Wasl Road, eliminating the need for a right turn onto Umm Suqeim Street, followed by a U-turn on Al Wasl Road.

This solution is expected to reduce traffic density at the intersection of Al Wasl Road with Umm Suqeim Street — two areas where several shops and schools are located. The project has cut the travel time from Umm Suqeim 3 northward to Al Wasl Road from three minutes to just 30 seconds.

Al Majasimi street was also widened from one to two lanes in each direction, doubling every lane's capacity from 1,200 to 2,400 vehicles per hour.

The completion of these works is part of RTA's Quick Traffic Improvements Plan 2024.
