The developer behind Dubai’s Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) development has warned that residents may experience additional traffic congestion over August and September as a result of road works.

Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) said that work by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Al Khail First Road, formerly known as Western Parallel Road, was scheduled for completion by the end of this year.

DMCC said that traffic diversions will be clearly signposted, but advised the community to make allowances for delays and disruption over the next two months.

DMCC has published a list of alternative exit routes during the road works:

- Clusters O - W: Exit towards Abu Dhabi or Dubai by turning left in front of Cluster G, proceeding towards Emirates Hills

- Clusters D - M: Exit Sheikh Zayed Road via the South side of the development (Jebel Ali side)

- Clusters N, A, B, C: Exit via Almas Road towards the South side of the development (Jebel Ali side)

Updates on works will be posted on www.dmcc.ae/jltcommunity/roads

Mixed residential and office development JLT has been the site of intensive construction work this year, with one of its lakes currently being filled in to make way for a community park.

DMCC is also planning on filling in half of another lake in order to build a large mosque.
