Motorists faced some delays in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, especially on Sheikh Zayed Road heading into the city towards the Sheikh Zayed Tunnel.

Roadworks are continuing on the tunnel, which connects motorists to the Corniche.

Drivers in the city were also on day three of the speed buffer ending. Now the displayed speed is the actual limit.

Traffic on the UAE's roads generally continues to be more free-flowing as schools are on their summer break.

Commuters from Sharjah into Dubai still face tailbacks on major approaches but not massively.

Some delays were reported on the E11 and 311 coming from the northern emirate into Dubai.

The congestion was mainly on the 311 from Sharjah's industrial area, but the traffic cleared up well before Dubai airport.
