New section of 120 Meter Road should ease Erbil traffic congestion

By Rudaw 11/1/2018
.
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.

This project has been a very big benefit to Erbil, and I am surprised that they continued to work on it with all the budget cuts that had to be made! Very good job, my thanks to all involved.

Putting in place a toll during Peak business hours is really the only way to reduce traffic.

So preventing traffic jams is a bigger priority than civil servant salaries? Very strange logic.

Following the West's car fixation is not the most intelligent thing developing countries can do. It has cost the world dearly, in resources wasted and in the health of the people. Kurdistan might also have invested the $440 million into railways and tram networks.

4km? In Europe that would have been built in 8 weeks. You need to work longer hours and stop having public holidays.

Your water problems seem to be political, not a result of a changing climate, which is also a political issue and not a proven fact.
