UAE reopens Aden Mukalla road in Yemen
The UAE reopened the road between the cities of Aden and Mukalla after it was closed to travelers because of the encroachment of sand dunes and damaged by floods and rains for a long time.
The UAE Red Crescent has embarked on a massive campaign to lift the creeping sand on the asphalt line in the Araqa area in the coastal district of Radhoum, east of Shabwa province, and to re-open the road for the movement of passengers on the international coastline, according to the site “Aden Time” on Saturday.
Local authorities in Radhoum said equipment, with support from the UAE, had reached a number of locations on the coastline to remove sand dunes that blocked the road and caused traffic accidents for passengers, truck drivers and vehicles.
The passengers expressed their thanks and appreciation to the UAE for its efforts to alleviate the suffering of the people in various aspects, including the opening of the road to them after long suffering, and their happiness to open the road completely, without obstacles.
