The Ruler of Dubai made a visit to the freshly constructed Infinity Bridge on 13th January 2022. The latest architectural marvel looks like an infinity symbol, hence the name. The new sensation of Emirates is heard to accommodate around 24,000 vehicles per hr. This new bridge would reduce the distance between Deira and Bur Dubai. This has been possible as the lanes crossing the Dubai creek has increased from 48 to 60.
The 13-kilometre long bridge has a mixed pedestrian and cycling track that is three metres wide. It has six lanes in each direction and takes its name after an architectural arch styled like the infinity sign. The Infinity Bridge is part of the Dhs5.3 billion Shindagha Corridor Project. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is completing the project in 11 phases. It runs along Sheikh Rashid Street, Al Mina Street, Al Khaleej Street, and Cairo Street.
The Project’s Construction Began In 2016 And Is Expected To Be Finished By 2027.
The project’s overall completion rate has already reached 85 per cent. The completion would happen around the second part of this year. The Corridor will service one million people. By 2030, it will reduce travel time from 104 minutes to only 16 minutes. It might save around Dhs45 billion in time over a 20-year period.
