Other works have included a 240m flyover at the intersection of Happiness Street and Burj Khalifa Boulevard and a 535m tunnel at the intersection of the Happiness Street and Business Bay Street.

The authority has also directed the construction of a 500m bridge along the extension of Happiness Street crossing the Dubai Water Canal, a 420m bridge at the intersection of Al Meydan Street and First Al Khail Street and a 340m horse crossing tunnel at Dubai Stables.

“The opening of the project has contributed in smooth traffic flow in the area between the Financial Center Street and Al Meydan Street, and across the Business Bay District up to Al Qouz,” the RTA said.
