The construction work for the new bridge was entrusted to the Roads and Infrastructure Department, he said.

The bridge was built according to the highest international standards to ensure commuters’ safety, he added.

Abdullah Al-Marzouqi, an engineer and the Director of Roads and Infrastructure Department, lauded the unstinted support of His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman, and also the able guidance of Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, the chairman of MPDA, who are pulling out all the stops to ensure that the emirate offers the best of civic amenities for all its residents.

He said the intersections were built with utmost care.

The civic body authorities have constructed free detour lanes and work is in progress to build more to facilitate uninterrupted traffic movement, he added.
