(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Shaikh Mohammed orders changing the name of Al Thuraya Street and renaming it after the late Abdullah Omran Taryam.

His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, on Tuesday ordered changing the name of Al Thuraya Street and renaming it after the late Abdullah Omran Taryam

The kind gesture of Shaikh Mohammed was a token of appreciation to Taryam's patriotic contributions, pioneering role in the march of the Union, and through the different national posts he had held including the portfolios of the ministry of justice and the ministry of education. The gesture was also in recognition for Taryam's prominent role in leading the movement of thought and familiarisation in the society, and his participation in galvanizing the pillars of the GCC media, namely through his Arabic daily Al Khaleej, that he cofounded

The 6-kilometre-long new street passes through the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone, starting from Umm Suqeim near Dubai Police Academy parallel to Al Sufouh Street. The two-lane street passes through the Dubai Media City crossing Shaikh Zayed Street in the direction of Greens Nursery locality, and ends at the First Al Khail Road on the entrance of Jebel Ali Horse Race Course

President and CEO of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Mattar Al Tayer, said the authority, in pursuance of the directives of Shaikh Mohammed, will commence immediately on replacing the road signboards within the next few days
