Video: These Dubai roads will be closed for UAE Tour today
Dubai will see rolling road closures from noon to 4.30pm on Friday.
Dubai will host stage 6 of the UAE Tour 2021 today (Friday, February 26).
The city will see "rolling road closures" across the route between noon and 4.30pm, the Dubai Sports Council has announced.
Roads will be reopened once the cyclists pass through a section of the 165km Dubai Stage.
The rolling road closure system will be implemented from 12 noon. The Dubai Stage is scheduled to be flagged off from Deira Islands at 12.35pm and expected to finish at Palm Jumeirah around 4.30pm.
It will take the cyclists on a tour of Dubai’s historically and culturally-rich older districts as well as its swanky new urban centres, and past some of the world’s most iconic landmarks.
