Abu Dhabi motorists warned about Yas Island road closure


Motorists are being reminded to abide by traffic rules during a road closure on Abu Dhabi's Yas Island.

The Department of Transport announced that Yas Drive will be closed from July 2 until July 30, as work continues on the UFC Fight Island. 

The month-long closure coincides with a number of safety measures that have been put in place by the UAE government. 

The fight festival will begin on July 12 and will continue with three consecutive fight nights on July 16, 19 and 26.
