Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the board and Executive Director, RTA, speaking to journalists on the occasion, said: “The Meydan Roads and Bridges Project is one of the key projects undertaken by the RTA and its importance is underlined by its size that spans an area of 67 million square feet and harbours the world’s biggest horseracing course.”
