“it also includes construction of bridges leading to the proposed peninsula to the south of jumeirah park. the contract also covers utility diversion works beneath the canal in addition to the construction of spare conduits for utility lines.”

the rta has also drawn up plans to divert traffic and ensure traffic safety for all road users.

the contract of phase i which costs about dh500 million includes construction of a bridge on the shaikh zayed road comprising eight lanes in each direction.

routes of impacted roads will be modified in order to ensure an integrated traffic movement between the two banks of the canal noting that the impacted part of the shaikh zayed road extends 800 metres.
