Bridge to Dubai Mall nearly ready

July 2017

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said about 90 per cent of the work on the Dh177-million ($48 million) Al Khail and Financial Centre Bridge has been completed and is on track for launch by the year-end.

The bridge, extending from Al Khail Road to the Financial Centre Road, is being built in co-ordination with top developer Emaar Properties and will be completed by the end of this year.

The project has become vital to accommodate Emaar’s massive expansion of Dubai Mall, rendering it capable of receiving more than 100 million visitors per annum, said the RTA. The expansion includes the construction of a Fashion Avenue beside the existing mall involving the addition of 75,000 sq m of car-parking slots.
