Opening a 160m cycling underpass at Meydan
RTA opened a new tunnel specifically designed for cyclists in Meydan area. This tunnel spans 160m in length and 6.6m in width, with a capacity to accommodate approximately 800 bicycles per hour. Opening this project is part of RTA’s efforts to transform Dubai into a bicycle-friendly city, which requires improving the infrastructure of cycling tracks and linking them with the residential areas as well as popular attractions. It also encourages residents and visitors to practice sports and recreational activities and provides a safe cycling experience for bikers conforming with the highest safety requirements.
The project, which is part of enhancing the infrastructure of Meydan intersection, involved transforming the surface intersection of the cycling track with Meydan Street into a dedicated tunnel, ensuring free and uninterrupted movement along the Meydan cycling track which effectively reduces waiting time for cyclists as a result of the elimination of the surface intersection. It also serves cyclists by connecting the development projects at Meydan and Nad Al Sheba communities as well as the Cyclists Club with the track.
