Dubai: The huge gridlock at Discovery Gardens on Thursday morning that left hundreds of motorists fuming in the rush hour traffic was due to a road closure by the Road Transport Authority (RTA), Nakheel said.
Nakheel said it has opened a temporary route between Discovery Gardens, Al Furjan (Villas) and E77 (Al Yalayis Road), that connects Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road and to Shaikh Zayed Road.
RTA however, said that “Discovery Gardens is a privately developed area and the developer is responsible for the situation there”.
“If we are invited, we will definitely help improve the situation, but right now it’s not in our hands,” said Hussain Al Banna, Director of Traffic at the RTA.
