New bridges to ease traffic around Dubai Mall


Accessing the popular Dubai Mall is about to get a lot easier, with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) opening new bridges in the area.

In a series of tweets, the RTA announced that one bridge will link The Dubai Mall Zabeel parking with the upper level of the Financial Centre Street, while the other will connect to Sheikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah.

A footbridge linking the parking area with Dubai Mall will also be opened.

Bridges linking the upper level of the Financial Centre Street and Dubai Mall's cinema parking are currently in the final stages of construction, the authorities added.
