Construction of the bridge, which will link the north and south Jebel Ali Free Zones, will cost about about AED105 million (£25m) and is expected to take 18 months.

“This project has been undertaken as part of RTA’s master plan for roads, bridges, crossings and tunnels aimed at improving the traffic flow in various parts of the Emirate of Dubai including areas under development or investment,” said HE Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of executive directors of RTA.

The project, which is situated nearby the 10th Interchange of the Sheikh Zayed Road, includes the construction of a dual carriageway of three lanes in each direction to link the traffic movement between Jafza North and Jafza South across the Sheikh Zayed Road. It also includes improvement works on roads connected by the bridge at Jafza North and Jafza South.
