Almost six years after work began, Khalifa Street is once again connected to Airport Road, with six lanes of traffic now making its way through a ground-level tunnel beneath Central Market.

Access in the congested city-centre area has eased since the opening of a portion of Khalifa (Street 3) last week, leaving local residents and businesses hopeful of easier passage and increased trade.

Tourists wanting to visit The Souq: Central Market should also find access easier as, in addition to the three lanes in either direction, a drop-off layby with a taxi rank at the entrance has been installed.

But other building work is continuing at Central Market, so while progress has been made, work is still ongoing in nearby areas.

Talal Al Dhiyebi, executive director of asset management at Aldar, the developer of the market, said yesterday: "The road closed to motorists in 2006 and opened on July 5."

The opening of other parts of the market will be announced later.
