Dubai Hills Mall is located at the junction of Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road
45% of the construction works on the roads and bridges leading to Emaar’s Dubai Hills Mall is complete according to Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). The project is being undertaken by the RTA in co-ordination with Emaar Properties at a cost of $212 million.
The project’s scope includes 12 bridges spanning 3,700m with a width varying from 11 to 22m, in addition to ramps connecting the bridges measuring 2,500m. The project is expected to be completed in the first half of 2020, the RTA said.
“The project covers the construction of internal roads at Dubai Hills Estate to ease the movement of residents of Al Barsha South 1 and 2 and link them with new roads and bridges. Works also includes the installation of traffic signals, shifting of utility lines and landscaping,” said Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the Board of the RTA.
The main objective of the project is to ensure the smooth flow of traffic from and to Dubai Hills Mall, as well as on Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road, the statement said.
The RTA notes that the bridges will separate the traffic from Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road and will lead to increased traffic capacity in the area. The existing four lanes of Umm Suqeim Street will be maintained in both directions to ensure a seamless vehicular flow, the RTA stated.
