The one of the largest project in the Dubai will serves about one million people and reduce the journey time for more than one hour by 2030 according to RTA, Dubai.

The project, which involves the development of 15 intersections along 13 km, is split into five phases due to its scale. It serves Deira and Bur Dubai, and other development projects such as Dubai Islands, Dubai Waterfront, Dubai Maritime City, and Mina Rashid.

Phase 4 extends 4.8 km from the intersection of Sheikh Rashid Road with Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street to the Falcon Intersection on Al Mina Street. It involves the construction of three bridges extending 3.1 km with a capacity of 19,400 vehicles per hour in all directions.

The RTA has completed several intersections along Al Shindagha Corridor, including Sheikh Rashid Road Intersection with Oud Metha Street (Wafi Intersection) along with the intersection of Sheikh Rashid Road with Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street.

Also built were two bridges on Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street, a bridge from Zaabeel Street towards Sheikh Rashid Road, and a tunnel on Sheikh Rashid Road intersection with Al Mankhool Street with a capacity of four lanes in each direction.

Five bridges were opened to provide access to Dubai Islands at the intersection of Al Khaleej Street and Abu Baker Al Siddique Road, with a total length of 2,571 metres and an estimated capacity of 20,700 vehicles per hour.

The main bridge on Al Khaleej Street is also now open, extending 570 metres and serving traffic on Al Khaleej Street coming from the intersection of Abu Baker Al Siddique Road, and traffic coming from Dubai Islands heading towards Al Shindagha Tunnel.

The Infinity Bridge, approximately 295 metres long and encompassing six lanes in each direction, as well as a three-metre-wide shared pedestrian and cycling lane, has long been opened.

Also, as part of the Al Shindagha Corridor Improvement Project, RTA is constructing Al Khaleej Street Tunnel, which extends from the end of the ramp of the Infinity Bridge in Deira to the intersection of Al Khaleej Street with Cairo Street. This 1650-metre-long tunnel has three lanes in each direction, accommodating 12,000 vehicles per hour.


The tunnel facilitates free traffic flow for motorists from the Infinity Bridge heading to Deira and vice versa. The project also includes converting the intersection of Cairo and Al Wuheida Street from a roundabout to a signalised junction along with some improvements on Cairo Street and connecting the bridge ramp from Dubai Islands to the new Al Khaleej Street Tunnel heading northward.
