The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has entered into a strategic partnership with Shamal Holding to construct a new two-lane bridge in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The project aligns with the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to enhance Dubai’s infrastructure in response to urban and demographic growth.
The bridge will span 1,500m in each direction, providing a direct route from Sheikh Zayed Road to Dubai Harbour.
With a capacity of 6,000 vehicles per hour, the new infrastructure is designed to improve traffic flow and reduce the travel time to Dubai Harbour from 12 minutes to three minutes.
RTA executive directors board chair and director general Mattar Al Tayer said: “RTA would construct a bridge of two lanes in each direction spanning 1,500m and accommodating 6,000 vehicles per hour. The bridge extends from the fifth intersection on Sheikh Zayed Road (near the American University in Dubai) to Dubai Harbour Street.
“It passes by the intersection of Al Naseem Street with Al Falak Street and crosses over the intersection of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street up to Dubai Harbour.”
