Traffic was moving slowly from Al Salam Street starting from downtown Abu Dhabi towards the Mangrove National Park on Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan street this morning.

Heavy to moderate traffic was seen on the highway leading to Suweihan, off Abu Dhabi island. The slow movement started from Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street, passing through Mussafah Street.

Similarly, traffic was much slower than it should be on the E22-Abu Dhabi Al Ain Road, as cars were moving at a speed of 26 km/hr.

There was slow moving traffic on the E10 in the Um Al Nar – Shahama area towards the roundabout leading to Khalifa City, where cars were moving at 9 km/hr.

Similarly in Sharjah, heavy congestion could be seen on D62 – Beirut Street; it was slightly better in the area leading to Dubai, and specifically towards the Airport Tunnel.

Traffic was at its worst on S112 – Maliha Road, where cars were crawling at 4 km/hr.

Motorists were struggling to make it through the Dubai – Sharjah border on S102, which passes beside the Sharjah Industrial Area 15.

And, as usual, the morning rush hour traffic was it at its peak on E311 – Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.
