Dubai drivers should brace themselves for possible traffic surrounding Sheikh Zayed Road. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed there will be several traffic diversions on both sides of the road starting this Friday, March 10.

The diversions taking place between Interchanges 2 and 3 will continue for over a year, lasting until July 2018. The diversions will affect Umm Al Sheef Street, Latifa Bint Hamdan Street and Al Zomorrud Street. Alternative routes will be provided.

Diversions

The first phase of the project, which is now complete, involved traffic divers on Umm Al Sheef Street. This is now the second phase, which will close the roundabout and the service road parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road on the seaside.

As an alternative, motorists will need to use the two temporary roundabouts to enter and exit Sheikh Zayed Road.

Following that, on March 24, the traffic diversion on the mainland side of Sheikh Zayed Road will begin. It will also include part of Latifa Bint Hamdan Street, which will be transformed into a one-way street.

As an alternative, drivers coming from First Khail Street will need to go west, turn left to Al Jarena Street and then go to Street No 3A. Motorists will find a U-turn replacing the roundabout on Al Zammorrud Street, with entries and exits on both sides.
