This efficiency boost will particularly benefit those heading towards Al Qusais and Sharjah, ushering in a new era of streamlined and time-efficient travel along these routes.
Mattar Al Tayer, RTA’s director-general and chairman of the Board of Executive Directors said,
It will slash the peak-hour journey times from 20 minutes to just 12. It will also diminish the journey time by 70 per cent — from 21 minutes to seven — for traffic going from Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road to Al Yalayis Road towards Jebel Ali Port.
The four bridges:
- First bridge at Garn Al Sabkha and Al Asayel streets will facilitate traffic flow between Sheikh Zayed and Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed roads.
- The second bridge will ease westbound traffic from Garn Al Sabkha Street to Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road, leading to Al Qusais and Sharjah
- Third bridge will address overlapping traffic from Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road heading north to Al Yalayis Road, directed to Jebel Ali Port
- Fourth bridge will tackle traffic overlap from Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Road to the service road, guiding to the entrances of Dubai Production City
