InPics: Sheikh Zayed Road diversions
To give way for completing works of the Dubai Water Canal project, the main traffic diversion is between Business Bay and Safa Park.
To give way for completing works of the Dubai Water Canal project, Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has opened the main traffic diversion on the Sheikh Zayed Road between Business Bay and Safa Park. The diversion is affecting the 1km stretch between the Business Bay Metro bridge (after Al Safa tollgate) and the second interchange, in the direction of Abu Dhabi. Traffic has been diverted to temporary-built adjacent lanes, which replace the previous service lanes and pedestrian access to the Safa area. The diversion road has the same number of lanes as Sheikh Zayed Road and little traffic impact is expected.
