Traffic snarls, morning fog affect commuters to Dubai

Dubai: Motorists on Monday morning were faced once again with gridlocked traffic following a night of chaos on Dubai’s roads.

Although rainfall was nowhere in sight, commuters driving along highways and main roads continued to face heavy traffic due to thick fog that fell across the UAE at around 5am.

Bottleneck traffic was reported after an accident was reported at Shaikh Rashid Road in the direction towards Dubai, which further delayed commuters driving on Al Ittihad Road.

Major traffic jams affected many pockets of the city, with noticeable delays on Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, Airport Road, Beirut Road, in addition to the areas of Karama, Dubai World Trade Centre, Business Bay, and Dubai Silicone Oasis.

The city of Sharjah was also at a standstill as every main road leading to Dubai had cars driving at a snail-pace, including Emirates Road, and the roads passing through University City, Al Taawun and the industrial areas.Schools unaffected

Schools in Dubai were not affected by Sunday’s storm and remained open as usual.

The Knowledge and Human Development took to Twitter to reassure worried parents that schools will be open on Monday.

It said: "Thanks for your messages - schools are open as per usual tomorrow.”
