Some Dubai Roads Will DEFINITELY Be Closed On New Year's Eve Adding To The Mayhem That Is Bound To Happen
Will this help?
Traffic is probably one of the biggest hinderances on New Year's Eve. To prepare for the nightmarish ride, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has mapped out a solid and comprehensive plan for the traffic movement for motorists to use on the day.
The Head of the Traffic Movement and the Handling of Operational Plans during Annual Events Team has said that, "The RTA had mapped out the operational plan necessary for serving commuters on the eve of the New Year, which normally experiences traffic congestion. The plan covers Burj Khalifa district where massive numbers of signboards are being installed to direct traffic from and to the area. Traffic is guided to multiple directions including Oud Metha Road, Al Asayel Road, Zabeel bridges, Al Saada Road, and internal roads at the Business Bay area to access Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road in order to ease the pressure on the Financial Center Road. To ensure a smooth traffic flow, light signals on the Financial Center Road and Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard would be monitored and controlled to ensure the maximum possible traffic flow at peak hours."
RTA will close Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard from 6 pm or 8 pm on New Year's Eve according to the overall traffic flow, and the upper & lower decks of the Financial Center Road at 8 pm. Al Saada Road will be closed from: Al Murooj Rotana intersection leading to Burj Khalifa & Tunnel at 6 pm, Zabeel Intersection at 8 pm, Emirates Towers R/A leading to Al Saada Road at 10 pm, Al Asayel Road at 4 pm (will be used by public transit means and VIP passage), Al Sukook Road at 8 pm, and Burj Khalifa Metro Station from 10 pm to 6 am (of the following day).
