The Dh722 million Rashid Hospital tunnels project in Dubai is 80 per cent complete and will be open to traffic by June 30 this year, the Roads and Transport Authority said yesterday.

The project involves the construction of two tunnels, each with two lanes, that will serve inbound traffic from Tariq bin Ziyad and Umm Harir Streets, and traffic heading towards the Floating Bridge extension.

It will also widen, improve and create other roads and junctions in an effort to increase the capacity of the roads to 6,000 vehicles per hour.
