64% of water canal project complete: RTA

The Dubai water canal project, which will link Business Bay with the Arabian Gulf, is 64 per cent complete.

This was highlighted by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) during the backdrop of the Dubai International Government Achievements Exhibition.

“Sixty-four per cent of the work has been complete,” informed Moaza Al Marri, Director of Marketing & Corporate Communication, RTA’s Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector.

“The work on the three bridges – Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Wasl and Jumeriah is nearing completion, and the excavation process should be done by end of September, or early October.”

The Sheikh Zayed Road Bridge, she added, is dotted with smart lights.

The RTA unveiled a map showing how the project will look once completed.

“When it is ready, you will be able to travel all the way from JBR to the canal, to Deira.”

The project will also see work on “3 pedestrian bridges, that will link people on either side of the canal, and the canal will have four marine service stations.”
