A 200 million AED bridge on Emirates Road is under construction at Sharjah’s Al Badea area and will be ready by August next year.
“The project will be completed by the third quarter of 2018 and once completed, will increase the capacity of the road from 9,900 vehicles per hour to 17,700 vehicles per hour,”
“The bridge will contribute to reducing the journey time for motorists, and will solve the problem of traffic congestion coming from Dubai in the evening due to the slow trucks heading towards Sharjah and the northern emirates,”
– Ahmad Al Hammadi, director of the roads department at the MoID
