According to RTA, the existing bridge on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road will be widened from three to six lanes in each direction in addition to the construction of service roads on both sides. A 220-meter two-lane bridge was built at the intersection of Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road and Dubai-Al Ain Road to create a U-Turn for vehicles coming from Dubai.

Work is now underway to build the main bridge at the intersection to allow turns in all directions. Work is underway to connect the intersection of Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road with the extension of Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan Road which opened in 2018.
