New bridge linking Al Khail Rd and Financial Centre Rd on the version of completion

The AED177 million worth new bridge connecting Al Khail Road and the Financial Centre Road will soon be completed. HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that completion rate had exceeded 90%. The project undertaken by RTA in coordination with Emaar Properties, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

The bridge consists of two lanes in one direction stretching 1270 meters with width ranging from 11 to 15 meters. It is built on individual pillars and crosses over the Dubai Water Canal. The project works also included lighting as well as the shifting of impacted infrastructure services such as water, electricity, irrigation, drainage and communication lines.

The project starts from the intersection of Ras Al Khor Road and Al Khail Road with the aim of easing and routing the traffic movement. The existing road will be widened by adding two lanes in a 480 meter-long sector to ensure a smooth traffic flow from the intersection of the Dubai-Al Ain Road at Al Khail Road and along the Upper Deck of the Financial Centre Road. An entry point will also be provided to the parking terminal of the Dubai Mall expansion project.

The project will ease the traffic flow along the Financial Centre Road as well as the surface intersections by reducing the vehicular density on the intersections leading to the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard. It will step up the capacity of the road to as many as 4500 vehicles during peak hours, serve a host of development projects, and alleviate the pressure on the existing roads network.
