Dubai Hills Mall road, bridge works 45pc complete

DUBAI, July 13, 2019

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that 45 per cent of the construction work on the bridges and roads leading to Dubai Hills Mall at the junction of Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road has been completed.
The project is being undertaken by RTA in co-ordination with Emaar Properties at a cost of Dh780 million ($212 million) and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2020. 
It encompasses the construction of 12 bridges spanning 3,700 m with a width varying from 11 to 22 m in addition to ramps connecting the bridges measuring 2,500 m, said a statement from RTA.
Dubai Hills Mall is one of the biggest destinations developed by Emaar as a joint venture with Meraas. It is an integral feature of Dubai Hills Estate and a destination that complements the development’s coveted residential and commercial community.
Featuring two million sq ft of leasable space spread out over two floors, it is home to over 650 retail and food and beverage (F&B) outlets including family entertainment offerings, a Cineplex and hypermarket.
According to RTA, the main objective of the project is to ensure the smooth flow of traffic from and to Dubai Hills Mall as well as on Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road.
The new bridges, which consist of four lanes in each direction, will separate the traffic from Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road, leading to increase the traffic capacity in the area. The existing four lanes of Umm Suqeim Street will be maintained in both directions to ensure a seamless vehicular flow, it stated.
Mattar Al Tayer, director-general and chairman of the board of the RTA, said: "The project covers the construction of internal roads at Dubai Hills Estate to ease the movement of residents of Al Barsha South 1 and 2, and link them with new roads and bridges. Works also include the installation of traffic signals, shifting of utility lines, and landscaping."
Dubai Hills Mall is easily accessible from Downtown Dubai, Emirates Hills, Dubai Marina, Arabian Ranches and other nearby communities via Al Khail Road and Umm Suqeim Street.-TradeArabia News Service
