Eas­ing cross town traf­fic

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

A new bridge de­signed to ease traf­fic around Safa Park and Jumeirah is to open to­mor­row, the Roads and Trans­port Agency (RTA) said. The four-lane Al Wasl Street Bridge is part of the Dubai Wa­ter Canal project and is ex­pected to help traf­fic flow more smoothly. It will be used by traf­fic trav­el­ling from Al Wasl Street to Al Aathar Street and runs around the cor­ner of Safa Park. The RTA said an­other el­e­vated high­way, the Jumeirah Street Bridge, is 70 per cent com­plete and is sched­uled to open in July. “Af­ter open­ing Al Wasl Street Bridge, the canal works un­der­neath the bridges would be fi­nalised, sub-roads and side­walks would be opened and all traf­fic di­ver­sions would be re­moved,” said Mat­tar Al Tayer, Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral of the RTA.
