Dubai's population is expanding steadily with a corresponding rapid growth in urbanisation and increasing traffic congestion. To address the traffic situation, the then Dubai Municipality Roads Department (now the Roads and Transport Authority) initiated planning for an upgraded, integrated transport network, which included, in March 2005, Project R880 for the development of the Mirdif Interchange.

The core element of Project R880 was the replacement of an existing road bridge at the Mirdif Interchange (which is the intersection of Al Khawaneej and Algiers Roads) with a high-capacity flyover. This intersection services the residential areas of Mirdif, Al Muhaisnah and Al Mezhar.
