Four key roads including part of Sheikh Zayed Road, the Lower Financial Centre Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, and a part of Al Mustaqbal street will be temporarily shut on Friday.

Each of the roads will have restricted access at varying times between 4:00 am and 10.30 am.

The announcement was made by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

Sheikh Zayed Road

Sheikh Zayed Road between the Dubai World Trade Centre roundabout and the Dubai Mall Bridge (fist interchange) will be closed from 4:00 am to 9:00 am.

Al Khail Road via the upper Financial Centre Road and Al Wasl Road via Al Safa Street are two alternative routes.

Lower Financial Road

The Lower Financial Centre Road will be closed on both sides from 4:00 am to 10:00 am.

The Upper Financial Centre road can be used as an alternative route.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard

The Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard will also be temporarily shut from 4:00 am to 10:00 am, with RTA suggesting Burj Khalifa street as an alternative path.

Al Mustaqbal Street

Al Mustaqbal Street, between 2nd Za'abeel Road and Financial Centre Road, will close later in the day from 6:30 am to 10:30 am.

RTA recommends using Al Sukouk Street and Al Boursa Street to circumvent the road closure.
