Trio in hunt for Emirates Road deal

Wade Adams, Dutco Balfour Beatty Group and Emirates Road Contracting chase US $60 million contract

Bids are due in today for the re-tendered US $60 million (AED220 million) Emirates Road Widening contract.

Wade Adams, Dutco Balfour Beatty Group and Emirates Road Contracting are all understood to be in the running for the job, which was originally put out to tender around four months ago.

Parsons has been appointed as consultant.

Six Construct, Bin Hafeez and Al Naboodah have confirmed they are not tendering for the job.

“The widening of the Emirates Road project runs all the way from the border of Sharjah until the Arabian Ranches roundabout in Dubai — that’s roughly 52km long,” said Mathew Varghese from the estimating department at Wade Adams.

Emirates Road currently has three lanes running in each direction. The widening project is expected to add another two lanes, one in each direction.

Adding additional lanes to the highway will help to alleviate the heavy truck congestion.

The Emirates Road widening project is one of a number of RTA tenders that are due in by the end of the month.

Bids for the Arabian Ranches Interchange are also due in on 21 May, while tenders for Ras Al Khor phases five and six
are due for submission by the end of May.

Ras Al Khor phase five, commonly known as the double-decking of Doha Road, involves constructing a two-layer road running from Defense Roundabout, along Doha Road in front of the Burj Dubai Mall and out to Khalil Road.

Ras Al Khor phase six involves the improvement of Defense roundabout.

Tenders are also due in for the road that will run between Sheikh Zayed Road and Khalil Road, next to the Burj Dubai development.
