UAE traffic: Several crashes on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road

A few crashes caused heavy traffic in the early hours of Thursday morning

Early morning traffic was felt in Dubai on Thursday on the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road following a crash around the Garn Al Sabkha Street intersection Abu Dhabi-bound.

The busy motorway also experienced heavy traffic in Sharjah from the Muwailih Commercial Area Dubai-bound all the way to Al Rashidiya as well in the opposite direction due to a crash around the Al Warqa 1 area and another one on its service road.

Motorists were also stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on Sharjah's Al Wahda Street in the direction of Dubai from Al Nahda to the Dubai International Airport.

The emirate’s Damascus Street was congested from Industrial Area 3 to the Amman Street intersection and on the Sharjah Ring Road from Industrial Area 15 to 4th Industrial Street, inbound.

Traffic was at a standstill on Al Awir Road in Dubai from International City to the Nad Al Hamar Road intersection going into the city.

Roads across Abu Dhabi were fairly clear, apart from some traffic on Salam Street from Al Wahdah Street to Al Sabtiyyah Street and into the capital from the Eastern Mangrove area to Al Dhafra Street.
