The new road included redevelopment of the western section of the corniche road and creating parking facilities and increasing the traffic lanes from three to four in each direction.

The land between the existing corniche gardens and the new road was developed into a major recreational and leisure area, almost doubling the previous area. One of the main objectives of the scheme is to relieve the traffic and parking congestion along the existing corniche road from the Arabian Gulf street up to Mina Zayed.

The project also includes construction of a bridge over the Sheraton Hotel lake, which will also contribute immensely in easing traffic on the new corniche road.
