The road reduced the travel distance between Tripoli and Sabha to 780 km, from the former 933 km via the Fezzan Road and Abu Qurayn.

The Mizda–Brak Road was constructed in two sections between 1976 and 1985.

  • The Mizda–Shuwairif section was built between the years 1976–1980.
  • The Shuwairif–Brak section was built between the years 1980–1985.
