The Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Chaired by Mattar Al Tayer, has endorsed the award of a Dh250 million contract for constructing roads and bridges at the Dubai Parks & Resorts project in cooperation with Meraas Holding.
The Dubai Parks project, which is situated on Sheikh Zayed Road in the direction from Abu Dhabi to Dubai, has been designed as an international leisure destination to attract tourists from the region in particular, and the world over.
The bridges project, in which construction works have recently started, aims primarily at constructing entry and exit points linking the Dubai Parks project with the Sheikh Zayed Road.
It comprises the construction of a 3-lane bridge stretching 1,500 metres as a main entry on the Sheikh Zayed Road for vehicles coming from Dubai and heading to Dubai Parks, and the construction of a 2-lane bridge stretching 1,000 metre as a main exit on the Sheikh Zayed Road from Dubai Parks in the direction of Abu Dhabi.
The project also comprises road works within Dubai Parks to link with the Sheikh Zayed Road and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. More info
