Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has called on the UAE business community to bid for the construction of three integrated rest stops for delivery motorbike drivers in the emirate.
The invitation to tender reaffirms RTA’s commitment to support the government in expanding private partnerships to enable knowledge sharing and exchange of expertise.
These sites will be located in three important locations.
The first is located on Sheikh Zayed Road near Jebel Ali Village Festival Square, the second is located in Port Saeed, near Al Muraqabat Street 22, and the third is located in Ras Al Khor Industrial Area 2, near Al Manama Street .
