RAK road to be completed by end of the year

The Minister of Public Works promises FNC that a main road in Ras Al Khaimah will be completed by the end of the year.

A main road in Ras Al Khaimah will be completed by the end of the year, the Minister of Public Works has promised.

At Tuesday’s FNC session, Abdullah Al Nuaimi said Shamel Al Qasedat was still being built after it was damaged by heavy rain at the end of last year.

With no alternative route available, the road was partly opened for public use. The premature opening and heavy rain caused the damage seen by council members, Mr Al Nuaimi said.

He said building work on the 9-kilometre stretch would be finished by the end of the year. He said this road was one of the hardest to build in the country.
