Meanwhile, the civic body has recently reopened the Sabkha Abra station, which was closed since May 14 for carrying out the construction of two floating pontoons.
Abdul Aziz Malik, Director of Public Transport Department said there will now be two routes from Sabkha Station to the Bur Dubai side of the Creek; the first to the Bur Dubai Old Souq Abra Station and the second to the temporary station near the office of the Ministry of Finance. He said the pontoons were built at the Sabkha station to ensure safe boarding and disembarking for users of the emirate's water taxi service. It would help children, women and elderly people to use the Abras without any difficulty, he added.
Malik said the project was undertaken to meet the demand of customers, based on comprehensive quality principles. "While implementing the project we have taken into consideration the requirements of people with special needs, the elderly, children, and women," he said, adding pontoons would also attract a new category tourists.
