The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has opened a tunnel on both sides of Sheikh Rashid Street, which is comprised of four lanes in each direction.
It is located at the intersection of Sheikh Rashid Street leading to Al Shindagha northward, and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street leading to the intersection with Al Kuwait Steet.
This tunnel is part of the improvement of Sheikh Rashid and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Streets Intersection Project.
Last year, RTA opened two main bridges, the first on Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Street comprising two lanes in each direction and second on a one-lane bridge stretching from Zabeel Street in the direction of Sheikh Rashid Street.
These two bridges contributed to the smooth flow of traffic in the direction of Al Karama and the World Trade Intersection in the direction of Sheikh Zayed Road.
After the successful completion of the Improvement of Sheikh Rashid-Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Streets Intersection Project, RTA has officially opened the tunnel for public transport.
