Closed sections of Al Salam Street to open soon

The municipality of Abu Dhabi has said the last remaining closed sections of Al Salam Street are expected to be opened to traffic within the next few days, Gulf News has reported. These sections include a nearly four-kilometre, two-way tunnel stretching from Dalma Street to the Abu Dhabi Corniche and Mina Port, as well as a signalised intersection on Mina Street. Al Salam Street was closed down in 2008 to facilitate the Dhs5bn upgrade project. "Construction works on the tunnel have been completed, and when opened, motorists can travel from Sheikh Zayed Bridge to the Corniche in 10 minutes without having to stop at any traffic lights," Majed Al Kthairy, head of traffic services at the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City, told the daily.
