Two roads swap names in Dubai


If you follow road signs, just know that two streets have been renamed in Dubai.

That's according to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which clarified that Happiness Street and Al Mustaqbal Street have swapped names. 

The street that stretches across World Trade Centre, DIFC, Emirates Tower and Burj Khalifa district will now be called Al Mustaqbal street, while the one located near City Walk will be known as Happiness Street.
