Traffic diverted to eight lanes of the flyover going towards Sharjah
Dubai: Commuters were surprised to find Dubai’s new Shaikh Zayed Road flyover open to traffic on Thursday morning.
The flyover, part of the ongoing Dubai Canal project near Interchange 2, was opened in the direction of Sharjah by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
Traffic has been diverted to the flyover, which stretches around 800 metres.
Two of the lanes approaching the flyover were closed on Thursday morning but all eight lanes of the bridge itself were opened once vehicles passed through the construction bottleneck.
