Dubai’s RTA to open Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street bridge in January

The bridge is part of wider works on the Sheikh Rashid-Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Streets Intersection



Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority will open a key bridge next month as part of continuing efforts to improve the emirate’s roads.

The main bridge on Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street is part of wider works on the Sheikh Rashid-Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Streets Intersection.

A tunnel linking Al Garhoud and Mina Rashid in both directions will join it in the second quarter of 2018.

The wider project, at the intersection of Sheikh Rashid Street in the direction of the northern end of Al Shandagha Network, and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street in the direction of the intersection with Al Kuwait Street, is now 70 per cent complete.

“The objective of such works is to ensure a free traffic movement from the Trade Center R/A to the intersection of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street and Al Kuwait Street through a two-lane bridge in each direction,” said RTA director general and chairman HE Mattar Al Tayer.

The construction of the wider intersection project is concurrent with the opening of the improvement of Wafi Intersection Project in April 2016.
