Emaar is rapidly moving forward with the development of five new retail link bridges that will assist with road connectivity to The Dubai Mall.
Launching in February, the retail link bridges connect the mall with Doha Road/Financial Centre Road and form part of The Dubai Mall’s Zabeel expansion, which entails more retail, F&B and entertainment options. This project is being undertaken by Emaar with the support of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
More than 1.78km in length, the elevated bridges have a total decked area of about 15,000m2. The longest bridge is over 765 metres, while the others vary in length from 120 to 582 metres. The bridges are buttressed by over 580 piles of varying diameter adding to their stability and strength.
The new retail bridge link will be the third in Downtown Dubai. Emaar has already opened link bridges from the Dubai Metro station and between Address Boulevard and the Metro Link.
