RTA in new partnership for Dubai Harbour bridge

Shamal Holding will build an important road link from Sheikh Zayed Road, slashes travel times by 75%, says the RTA

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has entered into a strategic partnership with Shamal Holding to develop a series of entry/exit points for Dubai Harbour.

Under the agreement, the RTA will undertake the construction of a two-lane bridge in each direction, spanning 1,500m. The bridge will extend from Sheikh Zayed Road to Dubai Harbour.

On the new bridge, Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors, RTA, said: “It will extend from the fifth intersection on Sheikh Zayed Road (near the American University in Dubai) to Dubai Harbour Street. Once ready, the new bridge will accommodate 6,000 vehicles per hour. It passes by the intersection of Al Naseem Street with Al Falak Street and crosses over the intersection of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street up to Dubai Harbour.”

He also explained that the project also includes surface improvements at four intersections along the bridge: the fifth intersection on Sheikh Zayed Road, the intersection of Al Falak Street with Al Naseem Street, the intersection of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street with Al Naseem Street, and Dubai Harbour Street.

“When completed, the project will improve the flow of traffic and reduce the travel time from 12 minutes to 3 minutes,” he added.

Shamal Holding Chief Portfolio Management Officer, Abdulla Binhabtoor remarked, “We are pleased to collaborate with the RTA to accomplish this strategic project, which represents a major turning point in the development of the Dubai Harbour district. This aligns with our plans and aspirations to offer the best integrated community in terms of quality of life and the well-being of residents and visitors. Upon its completion, the bridge will provide free traffic flow to and from Dubai Harbour, which occupies an exceptional location on the scenic seafront.”
