The new 26km-long Kalba road has been inaugurated by His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. The Sharjah Ruler unveiled a commemorative plaque at the inauguration event to mark the opening of the road, which extends from Wadi Al Hilou to The Flag Square in Kalba.

The road was built at a cost of $272 million and is said to be one of the most prominent development, service and tourism projects launched by the emirate. The road will help develop the city of Kalba in a way that serves the city’s residents and visitors, and reduces the travel time between Sharjah and Kalba from 90 minutes to 60 minutes, said a report by WAM.

The Kalba Road project comprises the 12.5km-long Wadi Al Hilou Road and includes three intersections and 10 crossings, while the 8.5km-long Wadi Madiq Road, includes a two-lane 450m mountain tunnel, five crossings and one intersection.

In addition, Dr Sheikh Sultan inspected a number of development projects that were classed as vital or tourist focused in Kalba. He also visited several projects sites on both sides of Kalba Road, including the green spaces forming hanging gardens, in addition to the 2km-long Yahar Lagoon project.

He later inspected the Kalba Corniche project, which extends over 9.5km, and has been provided with all services and facilities including a series of restaurants, shops, recreational facilities, green parks, children’s play areas and other playgrounds for adults. The project includes 2,200 parking spaces in addition to 85 parking spaces allocated for people with disabilities, 14 pedestrian paths, a park, beaches, and a garden running 8km long.
