The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced the start of periodic preventive maintenance works on the asphalt layer in parts of the Sharjah-bound Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Road.

2Accordingly, the first and second lanes will be closed weekly from 10pm on Thursday (starting from 16/06/2016) up to 10am of the following Saturday.

The closure period will remain recurrent up to 16/11/2016, and the RTA has taken precautions to ensure a smooth traffic flow throughout the duration of road construction works.

Explaining the above, engineers Maitha bin Adai, CEO of RTA Traffic & Roads Agency, said: “The initial phase will cover the sector parallel to the Arabian Ranches between the exits of the Arabian Ranches and the Global Village. Phase II will follow afterwards and will cover a sector from the exit of the Global Village to the neighbourhood of City of Arabia. The final phase will extend from the exit of City of Arabia up to a point just before the exit to Al Ain Road i.e. the area parallel to Falcon City.”

While the RTA regrets any inconvenience caused to road users as a result of these works, it calls on motorists to be attentive, comply with the directional signs and adhere to the speed limits in place for their safety and the smooth traffic flow. More info
