These roads are considered secondary roads in the holy city of Karbala. The total length of these roads is (5 km) surrounding the uptown of Ain al-Tamr district and then back to connect to the main road of Karbala - Ain al-Tamr.

 

The width of each of these roads is (6 m), with a dirt shoulder of (1.5 m). These roads were completed in 1985 AD by the Public Authority for Roads and Bridges.

 

There are also other unpaved and rugged overland roads that pass through the village of Al-Shuaib and divide into two branches, one of them towards "Umm Esifiye" Quarries, and the second one towards "Al-Aweina".

 

It is noticeable that the road connecting the Ain Al-Tamr district center and the uptown of Karbala Governorate, is a narrow road for two vehicles (back and forth), and we often find some sand, gravel, and other construction materials on the paved part of the road, which is caused by their splatted fragments from the heavy trucks that make up most of the vehicles that use the road, as the area is famous for its quarries and the heavy trucks loaded with construction materials to other areas of the country.
