Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) is implementing a programme to build 13 footbridges at a cost of US$12 million.
The project will increase the number of RTA footbridges from 74 to 87.
"The construction of footbridges marks RTA's efforts to provide safe transit means for pedestrians crossing streets," said said board chairman and executive director Mattar Al Tayer. The locations of the new footbridges have been chosen in the light of traffic studies taking account of factors such as the numbers of people crossing the roads at those points and which places are accident black-spots.
