The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has recently opened a new bridge on Airport Street, with the aim to cut travel time to Dubai Airport from 30 minutes to 5 minutes. Situated on the Marrakech Intersection, the bridge will reduce congestion from Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road to Dubai International Airport, allowing airport passengers to arrive quicker.
