ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Another section of the capital’s 120 Meter road will be opened at the end of the month, hopefully easing some of Erbil’s traffic congestion.
The four kilometer stretch will link the Erbil-Shaqlawa road with the Erbil-Koya road.
“Opening this portion will bring the traffic coming from Sulaimani into the city using this part of the road, rather than driving on the 100 meter road, which is crowded and has traffic jams,” said project supervisor Amir Abdulkhaliq.
The speed limit on the 120 Meter road will be 100 km/hour with no traffic lights, allowing drivers to complete a lap of the 28-kilometer ring road in about 20 minutes.
The cost of the project is $440 million.
