The works are divided into three phases on Sheikh Zayed Road and comprise eight lanes in each direction.
The ongoing second phase includes bridge construction over the canal of three lanes in each direction on the Jumeirah Road, two lanes in each direction on Al Wasl Road, and a flyover from Al Wasl Road to Al Hadeeqa Road.
The third phase covers drilling of a 3.2 kilometre canal, creating an artificial island, building a marine barrier around the island for a beach, and constructing a marina, a water bus station and three footbridges.
