RTA to open bridge linking Al-Khail and Financial Center roads in January


Dec 10 2017

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the bridge extending from Al Khail Road to the Financial Center Road, constructed in collaboration with Emaar Properties, will be opened early January 2018. The project is in its final phase as confirmed by HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, RTA.

The project encompasses the construction of a two-lane one-way bridge extending 1270 meters at a width of 11 to 15 meters built on single columns crossing over the Dubai Water Canal. The project works include lighting and infrastructure works such as the shifting the impacted utility services like water, electricity, irrigation, sewage and telecommunication lines.

The bridge, which starts from the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road-Al Khail Road, encompasses adding two lanes extending 480 meters to the existing road to enable direct flow of traffic from Dubai-Al Ain Road to Al Khail Road via the upper deck of the Financial Center Road. Works include providing an entry point for the parking terminal of the extension of Dubai Mall. The project will ease the flow of traffic along the Financial Center Road and surface intersections, thus easing the pressure on the intersections of Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevards. It will raise the capacity of the road to 4500 vehicles per hour during peaking hours, serve several development projects and ease the pressure on the existing roads network,” explained Al Tayer.
