Three pedestrian bridges to be built in Dubai

Project includes bridge linking four intersections in Dubai Marina

Three pedestrian bridges will be opened across Dubai.

The bridges will be located at King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street in the Marina area, Khalid Bin Al Waleed Street near the intersection with Al Rifa'a Street and Arabian Ranches Street beside the intersection with Al Asayel Street.

Mattar Al Tayer, director general and chairman of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), said the pedestrian bridge at King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, which will be completed by December 2019, is the first of its kind in the region – connecting four different destinations to an intersection.
