Dubai To Sharjah Commute Time Will Reduce By 40 Per Cent

These new bridges will be constructed at the intersection of Garn Al Sabkha Street and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road. Spanning across 3,000 metres and with a capacity of carrying 17,600 vehicles per hour, the project is getting constructed with a budget of AED374 million. Once ready, these new bridges will improve the traffic conditions between Sheikh Zayed Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, First Al Khail Street and Al Asayel Street.


Besides, you will be able to reach Sharjah in just 12 minutes, which is best for those who commute daily from Sharjah to Dubai and vice versa for work. It will also reduce the journey time for cars from Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road rightward to Al Yalayis Road in the direction of Jebel Ali Port from 21 minutes to seven minutes.

When it comes to bridges, the four bridges are different in terms of capacity and routes. The first is a two-lane bridge that can handle 8,000 vehicles per hour to-fro between Sheikh Zayed Road and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.

The second bridge is 660 meters and will take care of the traffic from Garn Al Sabkha Street Westwards to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road Northwards in the direction of Al Qusais and Sharjah. It will be able to accommodate 3,200 vehicles per hour.

The fourth bridge is a two-lane bridge spanning 680 metres long that would ensure smooth traffic flow and prevent the overlapping traffic from Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road to the service road leading to Dubai Production City. The bridge can handle 3,200 vehicles per hour.
