Al Maktoum Bridge in Dubai to be closed for maintenance
Al Maktoum Bridge will be closed for 8 hours every Friday for a month starting next week while the Roads and Transport Authority carries out maintenance work.
The bridge will be closed to road and marine traffic between the hours of 1am and 9am from October 27 to November 24.
Marine traffic will also be limited to Sunday and Thursdays between 1am and 5am.
While roadworks are under way, traffic will be diverted to Al Shandagha Tunnel, Al Garhoud Bridge and the Business Bay Crossing, in addition to exit points of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.
“These arrangements would ensure a smooth traffic flow during the closure, taking into account the closure timing of the Floating Bridge,” said Nazim Faisal, Director of Roads and Facilities Maintenance at RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency.
