Filed on October 27, 2020

Parking will remain paid in select areas.

Parking will be free in Sharjah on Thursday, October 29, on the occasion of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the municipality announced on Tuesday.

Parking will be free in all areas except:

> Al Hisn Street (Bank complex), in Al Shuwaiheen and Al Shoyoukh

> Corniche Street (both sides), in Al Shuwaiheen

> Qays Ibn Abi Sa’sa’ah Street (bird market), in Al Jubail

> Central Souq parking spaces, in Al Majaz 1

> Corniche Street (Khalid Lagoon side), in Majaz 1, Majaz 2, Majaz 3

> University City Road, in Muwaileh Commercial Area

Ali Ahmed Abu Ghazin, director of the Public Parking Department at Sharjah Municipality, said their team will continue inspecting parking lots to ensure that motorists are following rules and regulations. “The municipality is exerting all efforts to ensure that parking spaces are available to all residents and visitors.”

The areas that were excluded from the free parking initiative were identified based on a study, Al Ghazin explained. A field research has found several parking violations in these zones during public holidays. Some motorists have previously been caught occupying two parking slots for one vehicle, while other residents misuse the spaces by leaving their cars in the area for two to three days.
