The department, in coordination with the General Headquarters of the Sharjah Police, will temporarily close part of the road starting on Tuesday.

Suleiman Al Hajri, Director of Road Projects at the Department of Public Works, expressed his hope that the project will be completed within 75 days from the date of the beginning of its implementation. The project includes renovation of the Shaikh Mohammed bin Saqr Al Qasimi Road and a part of the two-lane road will be modified with parking spaces and footpaths.

“Mubarak bin Saif Nakhi Square will be turned into signaled intersection in addition to the implementation of development associated with service lines such as the rainwater drainage network and water lines, and network communications,” he said. Al Hajri added that the project is in line with the objectives of the department in improving road infrastructure and network in the emirate.

“The reconstruction work will positively contribute to increasing flow of traffic and the capacity of the road while reducing traffic congestion,” he said.

The road closure will include the Shaikh Mohammed bin Saqr Al Qasimi Road for passengers from Abdullah bin Ali Al Mahmoud Square towards the field of Mubarak bin Saif Nakhi (Kuwait Hospital) on the Nasiriyah area, and then followed by the closure of the field of Mubarak bin Saif Nakhi Square gradually until it is closed completely for up to the middle of next week. Al Hajri appealed to road users to drive vigilantly and with caution during the period of closure. The department apologised for any inconvenience caused to the motorists and invited them to communicate through the hotline, 80086767, to provide any comments or suggestions.
