New Bridge Construction

A 1,500-meter bridge will be constructed, featuring two lanes in each direction. This bridge will link Sheikh Zayed Road to Dubai Harbour, significantly improving connectivity. The bridge is designed to accommodate up to 6,000 vehicles per hour in both directions, drastically reducing travel time from 12 minutes to just 3 minutes.

Enhanced Traffic Flow

His Excellency Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, highlighted that this project will ease movement for both residents and visitors of Dubai Harbour. The bridge will span from the 5th intersection on Sheikh Zayed Road, near the American University in Dubai, to Dubai Harbour Street, passing several key intersections, including those at Al Naseem Street and Al Falak Street.

Community Impact

Abdulla Binhabtoor, CEO of Shamal Holding, emphasized the transformative impact of the project. Shamal Holding, as the custodian of Dubai Harbour, is dedicated to creating exceptional communities and experiences. This development will further enhance Dubai Harbour’s status as a premier seafront destination and vibrant residential community.

Prime Location

Dubai Harbour’s strategic location, nestled between Bluewaters Island and Palm Jumeirah and near landmarks such as Burj Al Arab and Expo Dubai, makes it a prime lifestyle destination. The area boasts diverse retail, hospitality, and living options, including the Dubai Harbour Residences, which offers luxurious apartments and penthouses with stunning sea and city views.

Future Developments

The area is also home to Skydive Dubai and an ongoing 1.5-kilometer development project featuring a residential complex with 24 towers and approximately 7,500 apartments.

This major milestone will ensure seamless traffic flow, cutting travel time and providing a superior living experience for residents and visitors alike. The partnership between RTA and Shamal Holding underscores their commitment to enhancing the quality of life and well-being of Dubai’s residents and visitors.
