Ten new footbridges in Dubai

Bid to improve safety for pedestrians crossing roads

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

In a bid to improve safety and accessibility for the city’s residents, Dubai is to get ten new footbridges next year, adding to the 100 that will exist by the end of 2014. Busy locations are to be targeted, including Bani Yas Street in Deira, Khalid Bin Waleed Street in Bur Dubai and the Dubai to Al Ain Road (E66). By the end of this year, the city will offer the best access yet for those travelling by foot, with four air-conditioned bridges at Al Sufouh Street – two serving tram users and two linking the TECOM district to the opposite side of the street.
