There is an existing single carriageway, one lane in each direction, approximately 30 km in length which
connects Masafi to Dibba Cement Factory Junction. The existing road starts at the roundabout junction on the
Adh Dhayd to Fujairah dual carriageway road and ends at the existing roundabout junction on the Izn to Al
Tawaeen road. Upgrade of the existing road that was constructed in the late seventies and passes through
mountainous terrain for the first 15 km north of the Masafi Town and then through a level terrain up to Dibba.
The mountainous terrains existing along sections of the existing road are very steep, in some sections slopes
exceeds 12% and for long stretches of the road, which is restricting the use of the existing road by the heavily
laden trucks that are unable to climb such steep gradients.
The scope of Conser Services aims at upgrading the existing road to a dual carriageway connecting the town
of Masafi in the south to Dibba in the North. The road project forms part of an important primary road
connecting Dibba town and surrounding area to western Emirates, mainly Dubai, Sharjah, Umm Al
Qaiwain and Ras Al Khaimah, through Fujairah – Masafi road.
