Dubai to create Air Conditioned Foot Bridges

Saturday, December 31, 2005

This image is an artists impression of what seven air-conditioned pedestrian bridges to be built near some of Dubai’s crowded junctions will look like.

Yesterday, Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) announced the dhs35 million project to be completed by the end of 2006. Each bridge is expected to cost around five million dirhams to construct, the RTA said.

The new bridges will be placed on Abu Hail Street close to the Grand Mosque, Al Nahda street near Union Co-operative Society, Abu Baker Al Siddique Street near Al Gaz Mosque, Al Maktoum street close to Al Khaleej Palace Hotel, Airport Road near the Cargo Village underpass, Casablanca Street near Dubai Tennis Stadium and on Baniyas Road near to the Sheraton Hotel.

These locations were selected taking into account a number of factors, the RTA said, such as movement of pedestrians and the percentage of accidents involving pedestrians.
