Early congestion on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed road and in Al Mamzar
UAE traffic: slow moving traffic in Dubai and Sharjah
Traffic has been building since 7 am in Dubai on the E311 and is extending all the way to Dubai International Airport, according to the Waze app.
Similarly, motorists have slowed to a crawl on Ittihad street which connects Sharjah to Dubai. Heavy congestion can be seen ahead of Ansar Mall and on Al Nahda Street, passing through the Mamzar Salik Gate.
In Sharjah, traffic congestion has also been reported on Damascus Street S102, between the traffic lights opposite Enoc and the intersection with D97 Amman Street.
Motorists on Beirut Street D62 have also been stuck in tailbacks.
It may also be wise to avoid the E44 Dubai-Hatta Highway, as it is experiencing moderate congestion from the intersection with Nazwa until the Lehbab Police Station roundabout.
No accidents have been reported yet.
