The upkeep of the bridges is taken quite seriously by the Dubai RTA. And to have a successful analysis of the conditions of such footbridges, RTA uses high-tech instruments. This is to verify the exact ailment of the infrastructure. Devices such as vibration-measuring devices, temperature-measuring instruments, acoustic frequency-measuring devices, and others are included in this list.

Al-Shehhi, the director of Dubai RTA, commended the public for informing RTA of incidents they had seen on footbridges.  And also the other related facilities by using proper channels. By filing such reports, local residents and users of public transit demonstrate their awareness of traffic laws and customs. This in turn helps the following dedicated department to act accordingly on the issue. Also, their care for the safety of people and property on the public right-of-way and for Dubai’s visual appeal is quite visible through these actions.

The range of footbridge maintenance operations includes building, civil, and electromechanical works. Other jobs like painting, quality control of air-conditioning, light systems, elevators, fire safety and more are all-inclusive in maintenance.
