Sharjah: The Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) is to partially block the bridge at the Shaikh Humaid bin Saqr Al Qasimi intersection for three days.

According to an official source, the bridge will be closed in one only direction only for those heading from Al Wahda road to Al Dhaid road from April 23 morning to 9am on April 26.

“The partial closure is due to urgent maintenance works to boost the performance of the bridge and enhance safety and security of the bridge users.”

All the worn out extension joints on the surface of the bridge shall be removed and replaced with new ones on a total width of 7.3m, he added.

“The necessary maintenance will protect people’s life and prevent traffic accidents and serious injuries, let alone reinforcing the bridge that heavy trucks with weighty loads can safely pass on it.”

All drivers are urged to be cautious on the bridge, stick to speed limits, and “use alternative roads, mainly the traffic signal controlled Shaikh Humaid bin Saqr Al Qasimi intersection which is controlled with a traffic signal to avoid congestion.”

The project is in pursuance to the instructions of the directives of His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah.

“All road and transport projects are designed to accommodate current and future needs of urban expansion in the region, enhance traffic flow, and raise the standard of living of residents therein.”

The Authority is dedicated to improve the quality of roads to cope with the underway plans for urban development and economic and tourism, as well as the steady increase of population and the movement of transport, he stated.

“Customers can reach our Call Centre 24/7 at (600525252) to submit their feedbacks, inquiries, suggestions and complaints.”
