New Bridges Completed At Umm Suqeim Street And Al Khail Road
Updated on 31 May 2020

The construction of 13 bridges at a major Dubai interchange has been completed. Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that roads and bridges leading to the Dubai Hills Mall project at the interchange between Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road are now complete.

Initially the RTA has opened a main bridge on Umm Suqeim Street, and the remaining bridges will open to coincide with the opening of the mall. The bridge on Umm Suqeim Street is around 500 metres long, has four lanes running in each direction, and a capacity of up to 8,000 vehicles each hour in each per direction.

The project is made up of a total of 13 bridges, with a combined length of 3.7 kilometres and spanning a width of between 11 to 22 metres in width, and has a capacity of 23,500 vehicles per hour.

“The completion of roads and bridges leading to Dubai Hills Mall  along with the associated infrastructure works and improvements of Umm Suqeim Street will provide direct entry and exit points for the area from and to Al Khail Road and Umm Suqeim Street. This will ensure a seamless traffic flow to and from the Dubai Hills Mall,” said His Excellency Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA. 

“The project provides three entry points to those coming from Deira, Umm Suqeim and Jebel Ali as well as direct exit points to Al Khail Road and Umm Suqeim Street. It will increase the capacity of Umm Suqeim Street and junctions; which will streamline the traffic flow in both directions of the street. Such improvements will slash the transit time on Umm Suqeim Street in the sector between Mohammed bin Zayed and Al Khail Roads from 18 to 7 minutes,” said Al Tayer.

“The project comprised the construction of 13 bridges with a total length of 3700 metres and width of 11 to 22 metres with a capacity to handle 23,500 vehicles per hour. Bridges included the construction of ramps extending 2500 metres. Ten of these bridges have entry and exit points to and from Dubai Hills Mall from Al Khail Road (already completed and will be opened in conjunction with the opening of the Mall). Works included the construction of three bridges providing entry and exit points for Umm Suqeim Street to separate the traffic from Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road heading to Dubai Hills Mall. The new bridges have lanes leading directly to the Mall, with an intake of 7500 vehicles per hour,” added Al Tayer.

Improvement of internal roads at the Dubai Hills Estate was also carried out to ease the movement of residents of Al Barsha South 1 and 2 by linking the new roads and bridges and Dubai Hills Estate. 

Dubai Hills Mall is one of the biggest destinations developed by Emaar as a joint venture with Meraas. An integral feature of Dubai Hills Estate, Dubai Hills Mall complements the development of coveted residential and commercial community while attracting visitors from far and wide. 

Featuring two million square feet of leasable space spread out over two floors, it is home to over 650 retail and F&B outlets including family entertainment offerings, a Cineplex and hypermarket. 

Dubai Hills Mall will be easily accessible from Downtown Dubai, Emirates Hills, Dubai Marina, Arabian Ranches and other nearby communities via Al Khail Road and Umm Suqeim Street.
