A delay is expected on Meydan Road today from 2pm to midnight due to the Dubai World Cup, which will be held at Meydan Racecourse.

In a tweet, Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) urged motorists to use alternative roads and start their journey early to reach their destination on time.

To facilitate smooth flow of traffic during the Dubai World Cup, the RTA also outlined a detailed traffic plan, which includes 11,400 parking spaces for visitors and 4,500 taxis to transport passengers to the event site.
