Dubai: Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Wednesday announced a partial closure of the parking space at Al Kafaf, opposite the Etisalat building in Al Jafliya, for 45 days starting from Friday, September 27.

The partial closure is need for the construction of a bus station and multi-level parking spaces on the upper floors.

Arrangements have been made to provide alternative parking during the two closures at the space opposite to the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs. Al Jafiliya Metro Station can also be used.
