They've opened the new road/bridge at Al Wasl on Friday this week. This work has taken 18 months to complete ready for the new canal to be dug out, linking the Creek to the Arabian Gulf at the cost of 802 million Dhs.
They've also had to raise a 16 lane highway the Sheik Zayed Road which will be completed in July and the Jumeriah Beach Road which is a 4 lane highway. The cost of rebuilding these roads is 384 million Dhs.
Both the Al Wasl Road and Jumeriah Beach Road will become one way systems, with traffic on the Al Wasl Road flowing towards the Burj Al Arab (the direction of the camera)
I've been documenting the work since we arrived in December 2014 and once the project is complete I'll post the photographs showing the 'before' 'during' and 'after'
