H.E Mattar Al Thayar, Director General and Chairman of the board of Executive Directors of Dubai Transport Authority announced the opening of a bridge extending from Al Khail road to the financial center road next month. The new bridge is expected to smoothen the traffic in the financial center area.

The two-lane one-way bridge is being constructed above the Dubai Water Canal. It has a length of 1270 meters and a width of 11 to 15 meters. The installation of lighting, water, electricity, irrigation and waste management systems are in its final stage. The road which begins at the intersection of Ras al Khor road and Al Khail Road will ease the traffic from Dubai Al- Ain road to Al Khail road. It will also help in entering the parking terminal of Dubai Mall.
