Video: RTA opens five bridges leading to Deira Islands


Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has opened five new bridges leading to the Deira Islands project.

The flyovers spanning more than 2.5 km in length, have a total capacity of 20,700 vehicles per hour.

They provide access points to and from Deira Islands at the intersection of Al Khaleej and Abu Baker Al Siddique Streets.

The bridges are a key part of Al Shindagha Corridor Project stretching 13 km along the Sheikh Rashid, Al Mina, Al Khaleej and Cairo Streets.

The project is being implemented based on the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
