Visitors to Dubai could soon be able to get to the huge Dubai Mall with a pedestrian walkway.

Travellers taking flights to Dubai could find it easier than ever before to get to the Dubai Mall soon as plans to create a new pedestrian link has been announced.

The Dubai Mall Metro Link has been planned, which will see an 820 metres long pedestrian link created that connects the Burj Khalifa/The Dubai Mall Metro Station with some of the most iconic locations found in the emirate.

As well as offering visitors with a convenient way of gaining access to the world’s largest shopping centre, another benefit is that the amount of traffic in the area will be reduced.

“While the mall offers covered parking for over 14,000 vehicles, we have been evaluating various alternatives to further streamline visitor traffic and add to their convenience,” said  Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties.

Some people who took flights to Dubai for the new year could have found the region was offering plenty of transport options as the local authority stated it was laying on additional transport.
