Stand by for mega-congestion.

I posted a piece on Dubai Metblog about the approval of the Creek extension plan.

(We don't post Metblog items on our other blogs, so I didn't put it here. You can read it by clicking on the link over there on the right).

The new stretch will run into the Gulf at Jumeirah. It will be at least 100 metres wide and will cross Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Wasl Road and Jumeirah Beach Road.

To cross the water, SZR will have a new 12 lane bridge built, Al Wasl and Beach roads will both have six lane bridges built.

Just stop and think what that means and about the congestion the construction of those bridges is going to give us.
