New bridges are designed to meet the transportation needs of major theme park destination
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) says it has completed construction works of the Dubai Parks & Resorts bridges project in cooperation with Meraas Holding, at a cost of $68 million.
The bridges are expected to be fully commissioned and operational by the end of October, according to the UAE state news agency WAM.
“The project comprised the construction of a three-lane bridge stretching 1500 metres as a main entry for vehicles coming from Dubai heading to Dubai Parks and a two-lane bridge stretching 1000 metres as the main exit in the direction of Abu Dhabi,” said Mattar Al Tayer, the RTA’s director-general and chairman.
The project also comprised road works within Dubai Parks extending about 16km.
Works included lighting, traffic signs, rainwater drainage, utility lines, besides shifting and protecting utility lines intercepting the project works such as electricity, water, communication and others, explained Al Tayer.
