Dubai: Long delays and queues greeted motorists in different parts of Dubai during early morning rush hours on Sunday, as vehicular accidents caused some tailbacks on major thoroughfares.
Civil works on busy streets have also added to the traffic woes of the residents as they returned to work after the weekend.
According to TrafficDXB, which provides regular traffic updates in and around Dubai, multiple road accidents resulted in congestion and tailback on the Abu Dhabi-bound lane of Shaikh Zayed Road, near Dubai Canal.
Another accident was also reported on Al Khail Road, just before the Meydan exit towards Business Bay Bridge and Dubai Mall.
Traffic was also slow moving in some parts of Business Bay and Downtown Dubai, particularly near Dubai Mall, where some road works are ongoing.
Motorists near Mercato Mall, City Walk, Dubai International Finance Centre (DIFC), Dubai World Trade Centre and Zabeel Park, including those passing through some parts of Karama and Satwa were likewise met with delays.
