Two new bridges in Dubai should help traffic congestion

New Bridges Dubai

If your daily commute involves these busy Dubai roads, good news, driving might just become a little easier.

Two new bridges have opened as part of a Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA) project to improve traffic flow at the Sheikh Rashid-Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Streets intersection.

It is hoped they will ease traffic coming into Karama at Kuwait Street, which is often a sticky point for drivers, and towards the World Trade Centre junction in the direction of Sheikh Zayed Road. Here’s a quick whizz round the new bridges:

The Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street has two lanes and the second in Zabeel Street (in the direction of Sheikh Rashid Street) is a one-lane bridge. Later this year they’re going to be joined by a four-lane tunnel that will run in both directions between Garhoud and Port Rashid.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the RTA, said: “The Project is part of RTA’s master plan for the improvement of roads, bridges, crossings and underpasses to accommodate the growing traffic volumes, and ease the traffic movement in all parts of Dubai.”

Hoping for Google Maps to catch up asap!
