Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is reminding motorists about traffic delays on Hessa Street due to the final of the Asia Cup cricket tournament taking place on Sunday.

In a series of Tweets, the RTA said the section of the street near Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road intersection will be impacted from 3:00 pm to 11:00 pm.

It has called on motorists to use Umm Suqeim Street to reach their destination/match location, while residents of Dubai Sports City can use Al Fay Road as an alternative route.

Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final, which is scheduled to kick off at 6:00 pm.
