Heavy traffic on key roads as offices resume in Dubai

As offices in Dubai of United Arab Emirates resume operations, following the lifting of restrictions last week, the emirate's roads are witnessing a return to slow moving traffic on Sunday morning.

An accident was reported on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road near Dubai Investment Park. This has caused a tailback going towards Jumeirah.

According to Google Maps, heavy traffic congestion was observed on key highways like E311 Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road from Sharjah Industrial area towards Muhaisnah in Dubai.

Slow moving traffic was also reported on the E11 route - from Sharjah to Dubai - particularly in Al Nahda, leading up to Hor Al Anz East.

Traffic was also heavy in other areas such as Green Community Village, Al Quoz 1, Ras Al Khor Industrial Area, Dubai Silicon Oasis and Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club - Abu Dhabi, Khaleej Times reported.

Commuters are advised to find alternate routes to circumvent the road jams and avoid delays.

The build-up in traffic is expected as Dubai returns slowly to normalcy, and offices are allowed to have up to 50 per cent of their workforce on site now. This is up from the previous 30 per cent cap
