Crossing the busy intersection at Dubai Marina is all set to become very easy!
HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has given directives to The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to begin constructing three new footbridges in the area, one of which will have four-directional links.
The aim of this new construction is traffic safety and to make crossings safer for pedestrians

One of the bridges will have four-directional links at Dubai Marina
The bridges spread in three Dubai hotspots and are named: King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Street at the Marina, Khaled Bin Al Waleed Street near Rif’aa Street intersection, and the Arabian Ranches Street near Al Asayel junction.

According to the RTA: “the pedestrian bridge on King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Street is the first of its kind in the region for it links four sides of a vital junction with the western street near the JBR and the entrance of the Marina. The bridge, which will extend 65 metres, can accommodate 4,000 people per hour.”
The project will be completed by December 2019.
