It should be noted that the bridge will extend from the fifth intersection on Dubai Zayed Road to Dubai Harbour Street. Not to mention, it will also pass by Al Naseem Street with Al Falak Street and cross over the intersection of King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street up to Dubai Harbour. In fact, if a bond is completed, the bridge will offer a free traffic flow to and from Dubai Harbour. Not to mention, with the development of this bridge, the travel time will be reduced from 12 minutes to just 3 minutes!
So, we cannot help but hope that this bridge is built soon so that travelling in the emirate becomes easier than before.
