The RTA also opened a surface signage junction at the intersection of Al Khaleej Street and Omar bin Al Khattab Street.
“Traffic was also diverted from Al Mamzar, the junction of Abu Baker Al Siddique Street and Deira Islands to the new bridge, then to the surface junction at the intersection of Al Khaleej Street and Omar bin Al Khattab Street, he added.
“The current contract completion rate for the Shindagha Roads Corridor Project has reached 70%. Due to the sheer scale of the project, it had been divided into five phases which served development projects in areas such as Deira Islands, Dubai Waterfront, Dubai Maritime City and Mina Rashid. It can also accommodate future expected traffic volumes. When completed, the project will reduce the travel time through the Shindagha Corridor from 104 minutes to just 16 minutes, ”he said.
