A royal mess in Al Jawat

THE mess in the middle of a major market area in Sharjah, Al Jawat in Abu Shagarah, due to the presence of numerous second-hand furniture shops, is beginning to cause all kinds of problems to local residents: The busy street is almost blocked adding to the traffic congestion, the sundry workers and labourers employed by these shops block the by-lanes and the corridors of residential buildings, when not working they loiter in the area and hinder the movement of local residents, their pick-up vans hinder the movements of the heavy vehicular traffic etc, especially on Al Esteklal Road ... all of which adds to the insufferable din and the chaos in the neighbourhood.

There should be no doubt that this problem will only intensify if the municipal authorities do not take some remedial measures right away.

We therefore call upon the authorities concerned to tackle and resolve this problem on a top priority basis.
