A massive gridlock has been reported on Al Khail road extending for 4.9km, according to Google Maps.

The major build-up is being caused by two accidents and roadworks that are taking place in that stretch. A huge red line can be seen on Google Maps, beginning from near Dubai Design District till Al Quoz, indicating that the gridlock is on the side of the road heading to Abu Dhabi.

One lane has also reportedly been closed, with KT reader K Ann saying, "There are only five functioning lanes instead of six, which is adding to the pile up."
