Dubai owing to its fast growing population faces a lot of traffic difficulties, especially during peak hours. But the RTA(Road & Transport Authority) has left no stones unturned to ensure that every time you go out on to the streets of Dubai , you don’t have to spend hours wasting your fuel and trying to accelerate to your destination when actually you cannot move any faster to a old tired tortoise.
If you are familiar with Dubai and its traffic then you would also know that how important the creek bridges have been in reducing traffic and increasing mobility on road.
One of the most impressive bridges in Dubai is the Floating Bridge that connects Riyadh Road, Dubai Courts and Creek Park on Bur Dubai with Baniyas Road, Deira City Centre and the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club on the Deira side –it is the fifth crossing on Dubai Creek. The most impressive fact about this bridge is that it was built in a record time of 23 days. The bridge allows over 6000 vehicles to cross through it during peak hours . It is a temporary bridge that is soon to be replaced by the Dubai Smile: which is another magnificent piece of architecture and its structure justifies its name ‘J’- ey.
That’s me playing jovial. Anyways , the point I want to derive is that though the rate of population growth in Dubai is mammoth accounting to the ever increasing skyscrapers and high rises, still the RTA of Dubai has always been on the feet to help curb this traffic issue to a great extent. I sincerely congratulate the RTA –Dubai, for making lives better and easier on streets here.
The Business Bay crossing , also known as Ras Al Khor Bridge is no Greek name to bridge admirers as this long bridge creates a swift passway between the Dubai Airport zone and the Bur Dubai side. This 13 lane , 1.5 kilometres long bridge can carry upto 26,000 vehicles per hour . It is equally magnificent an architecture that has made lives easier and faster in Dubai. The Arch Bridge in Dubai is the longest arch bridge in the world and adds more accolades to Dubai’s credit with its artistic appearance and design. The striking design of the bridge is inspired by the design of Dubai’s Opera house ,a bifurcated structure.
Bridge lovers, the ones who love to feel the air as it blows up to your cheeks ,the cold breeze that plays with your hair when driving or high bridges, the ones who love to ride on top of water. There is just one suggestion for you, Dubai is your place to be. There is hardly any place which will give you such a vivid mixture of creek bridges to look up to and rush your car on. Driving on the floating bridge, the Business Bay bridge may actually make you feel you are on a water coaster.
