If you thought that the dear old Shindagha Tunnel was not going to ever open again, then you were completely wrongggg
Since the Infinity Bridge opened to the public, lots of Dubai peeps thought that when the Shindagha Tunnel closed in January 2022, it would never open again.

But now after 2 months, the 47-year old tunnel will re-open on Sunday, 13th March in the Deira to Bur Dubai direction
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced the update following the completion of works to link the Infinity Bridge and the new bridges with the tunnel. This will enhance the road capacity by 3,000 vehicles per hour.
The RTA also made changes to the directional signs in the area to ensure the smooth flow of traffic. The movement in Shindagha Tunnel in the direction from Bur Dubai to Deira will remain as it is and is open for road users.
