New Sharjah-Dubai bridge set for 2018 launch

14-11-2017

Work is progressing well on a massive Sharjah-Dubai bridge aimed at increasing the road capacity to 17,700 cars per hour from 9,900 at present. The project is due for completion by the third quarter of 2018.

The nine-lane bridge is located between Emirates Road and the Maleha highway and consists of six lanes on Emirates Road and three lanes on the Sharjah-Maleha Road, reported Gulf News.

On completion, the bridge will be open for public and traffic diverted away from heavily congested routes, such as the Al Ittihad Road and the Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed (MBZ) Road, stated the report.  

Work will also be implemented to expand Emirates Road from three to six lanes besides repairing damaged parts of the road at Intersection No.7 on the Al Dhaid-Maleha Road, it added.
