Dubai streets renaming project continues
The committee to rename the streets of Dubai has been restructured and the streets in Dubai will continue to be renamed as planned, the Roads and Transport Authority has announced.
Under the project, more than half of Dubai’s main roads and internal streets have been renamed and the project will run its course with more than 22,000 roads in the city set to be renamed eventually.
The project will ensure each street in Dubai will have a unique name, replacing the numbers that were being used in the earlier system, Gulf News reports.
According to the RTA, the new naming convention will help motorists and road users identify locations easily compared with the earlier system which uses street numbers, which were repeated in each community.
The streets are being renamed taking into account the history and culture of the area to reflect Dubai’s heritage.
