The longest road in Erbil, measuring 120 meters, was officially inaugurated on Sunday, February 5, 2017, at a cost of $450 million

The fast line's 2007 design, which omits any bumps or traffic crossings, contributes to the city of Erbil's reduction in traffic congestion.

The 120-meter roadway, which is the longest and quickest road in Erbil and one of the most significant strategic projects in the Kurdistan Region's capital, was finished in time for its opening on this day after construction was halted for an 18-month period owing to the financial crisis.

The 38 km long route, which links the Erbil-Koya and Erbil-Shaqlawa roads, is dependable in resolving a variety of traffic issues in the city.

According to Newroz Mawloud, Minister of Municipalities and Tourism for the Kurdistan Regional Government, "This project is one of the strategic projects in the capital of the Kurdistan Region, and its importance lies in easing congestion from within the city to outside.

Three phases made up the project's completion: the first, which covered a distance of 11 km from the Kirkuk road to the Mosul road and was carried out by the Turkish company Ecgalry; the second, which covered a distance of 16 km from the Mosul road to the Shaqlawa road; and the third, which covered a distance of 1 km from the Kirkuk road. These two phases were carried out by Hemn Group.
