TradeArabia News Service reported that Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority recently opened a main bridge at the intersection of Expo Road and Al Asayel Street. The bridge is a part of Phase Five of the roads network leading to Expo site. The completion rate of this phase has exceeded 50 per cent, and construction will complete this June.

Mr Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, said that "RTA has partially opened three lanes in each direction of the bridge on Expo Road. This phase includes the construction of bridges extending 2.6 km and roads spanning about 3 km. Expo Road will be widened to six lanes in each direction over a 3-km sector." "Two service roads will be added to ease the present traffic condition," he stated, during a recent inspection tour of work progress in Phase One and Five of the Project.

Mr Al Tayer said that "Expo Road will be elevated at the intersection with Al Asayel Street with a bridge of six lanes in each direction extending 800 m. Two other bridges will be constructed to link Expo Road with the service road extending one kilometre to ensure smooth traffic flow from and to Expo site. This Phase also covers improvement of Al Asayel Street through the construction of a signalised surface junction at the intersection of Expo and Al Asayel Streets to ensure entry and exit from Expo Road to Jebel Industrial Area and Jafza."
