Dubai ruler renames street after Saudi’s King Salman

One of the emirate’s most important roads will now bear the name of the Saudi ruler

Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has ordered the renaming of a street after Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to celebrate the 86th Saudi National Day.

Al Sufouh Street, which stretches from Dubai Marina to Madinat Jumeirah and the Mina A Salaam hotel, passing the Palm Jumeirah, will now be known as King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, according to the directive, tweeted by Dubai Media Office.

In a tweet, Sheikh Mohammed said the renaming was in recognition of King Salman and his achievements in the region and the wider Muslim world.

Al Sufouh Street is used by the Dubai Tram, which follows the road from the Mina Al Seyahi station to Al Sufouh station before reaching the depot.

The tram will eventually extend to Madinat Jumeirah, the Burj Al Arab hotel and Mall of the Emirates.
