New bridges leading to and from parking areas at the Dubai Mall will open later this month.

Transport authorities said the routes would help cut congestion and tailbacks in the Downtown area from October 29.

One bridge will link the mall's parking with the upper level of Financial Centre Street.

A second will extend from the shopping centre towards Sheikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah.

Officials from the Roads and Transport Authority also announced that a footbridge connecting to the Dubai Mall would be opened soon.

The project is part of efforts to streamline the flow of traffic to the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard alongside the Dubai Mall.
