Because a DLT uses a two-phase signal, it results in less delay, fewer pollutants, and lower fuel consumption than conventional at-grade intersections with three or more signal phases.
The construction will incorporate the revamping of the mainline road, expanding the carriageway from two lanes in each direction into three lanes each besides converting three roundabouts into three at-grade intersections along with two cycling and pedestrian underpasses.
It also includes improving at-grade intersections and constructing a service road.
It also includes improving at-grade intersections, and constructing a service road of 3 lanes in each direction to separate the traffic movement from and to Nad Al Hamar St.
It also includes improving at-grade intersections, and constructing a service road of three lanes in each direction to separate the traffic movement from and to Nad Al Hamar Street from the traffic on the Airport Road starting from Al Rashidiya intersection up to Marrakech Road intersection.
The J-turn design is a proven safety treatment for high-speed rural, multilane, divided highways with at-grade intersections. The design has the added advantage of maintaining a high degree of access to minor crossing routes and adjacent properties.
Edsa, for example, has a capacity of 200,000 vehicles a day on ideal conditions (freeway conditions, minimal road side frictions, no at-grade intersections).
they are used in the same infrastructure objects (in this case--in at-grade intersections), they are intended for serving the same traffic organization assurance function and realized by the road users as a measure of the same type.
The project will incorporate revamping of the mainroad, expanding the carriageway from two lanes into three lanes in each direction, converting three roundabouts into three at-grade intersections and constructing two cycling and pedestrian underpasses.
Work also includes improving at-grade intersections, and construction of a service road of three lanes in each direction to separate the traffic movement from and to Nad Al Hamar from the traffic on Airport Road starting from Al Rashidiya Interchange up to Marrakech Interchange.
