According to police, the bridge will be partially closed from October 5 at 11pm until October 7 at 5pm on Saturday for maintenance work.

Abu Dhabi Police urge motorists driving through Al Maqtaa Bridge to be extra cautious and not to speed, due to the diversions in the inbound direction to the city.
