Dubai: The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will take measures to ensure there is no traffic congestion during the Dubai Shopping Festival celebrations, Hussain Mohammad Al Banna, Director of Traffic Department at the RTA, told Gulf News.
A special team has been formed to ensure smooth flow of traffic on Baniyas road and Al Seef road, and in areas where the fireworks display will take place.
The Business Bay crossing, Garhoud bridge and Floating bridge will also be monitored for traffic blocks.
Some motorists tend to slow down or park their cars on the road, which could result in traffic obstruction, he said calling on drivers to put their safety first and focus completely on the road while driving.
The Dubai Police security and traffic patrols will be extensively present around festivities area to ensure smooth flow of traffic and enforce traffic regulations, similarly to steps taken during National Day and New Year celebrations.
