DUBAI // Up to two lanes on stretches of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road Sharjah-bound will be closed each week for maintenance from 10pm on Thursday until 10am on Saturday, the Roads and Transport Authority said.

The weekly closure will remain in place until November 16, while preventative maintenance works on the asphalt takes place.

“The initial phase will cover the sector parallel to Arabian Ranches, between the exits of Arabian Ranches and Global Village,” said Maitha bin Adai, chief executive of RTA Traffic & Roads Agency.

“Phase two will follow afterwards and will cover a sector from the exit of Global Village to the neighbourhood of City of Arabia.

“The final phase will extend from the exit of City of Arabia up to a point just before the exit to Al Ain Road, ie. the area parallel to Falcon City.”
