A bridge from Sheikh Zayed Road to Dubai Port will reduce travel time to the coastal destination from 12 to three minutes. The 1,500 meter bridge will have two lanes in each direction.

Mattar Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), said the bridge will serve as a direct entry/exit point to Dubai Port. It has capacity for 6,000 vehicles per hour.

“The bridge extends from the fifth intersection of Sheikh Zayed Road (near the American University of Dubai) to Dubai Harbor Street. It passes through the intersection of Al Naseem Street and Al Falak Street and crosses the intersection of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street to Dubai Port,” Al Tayer said.
