Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will open a 420m tunnel on 20 July as part of ongoing road works in the city’s Business Bay district.

The tunnel will provide a left-turn from the Happiness Street to Al Meydan Street, and will be part of the recently opened Phase 2 of the Parallel Roads Improvement Project.

The Western Parallel Roads Improvement Project spans the area between Al Meydan and the Financial Center Streets and across the Business Bay District.

The Project also included the construction of a 500m bridge along the extension of the Happiness Street crossing over the Dubai Water Canal, and 420m bridge at the intersection of Al Meydan Street and First Al Khail Street, in addition to a 340m tunnel as Horse Crossing at the Dubai Stables.
