The completion of flyovers that run across the canal at a height of eight metres allows the contractors to finish the pending excavation work.

A trip down the Shaikh Zayed Road and Al Wasl Road flyovers now offer a view of completed portions of the canal.

According to the latest update from the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), 75 per cent of the canal excavation work has been done and the rest is set to be over by the end of September.

The Dh2 billion project is being carried out in five phases and the excavation is part of phase three. Phases four and five are also being carried out simultaneously. More info
