Sharjah Urban Planning Council (SUPC) approved designs of five pedestrian bridges to be built in five different areas in the emirate, in collaboration with the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority.
The five pedestrian bridges will be constructed in busy areas including King Faisal Road, King Abdulaziz Street, Al Ittihad Road and Al Taawun Road. The bridges will be fitted with lifts and shaded walkways to ensure accessibility for the elderly and people with special needs.
Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Chairman of the Sharjah Urban Planning Council, said: “We are consistently striving to support and develop projects that help provide quality service to citizens, residents and visitors in the emirate of Sharjah. Developing projects of this kind is a top priority for the SUPC, as such structures will complement the attractive architectural landscape and the fully functional infrastructure in the emirate and will respond to the needs and aspiration of people and communities. The purpose of the pedestrian bridges is to improve pedestrian safety at major intersections and main roads in the city of Sharjah.”
