Residents see traffic jams as a 'good sign'
After more than two months of work from home, Dubai streets and public places were buzzing with activity on Wednesday as the emirate eased back to normalcy with restaurants, cinemas and gyms opening for business. By evening, Al Ittihad Road, Al Khail, Airport Tunnel, and the Mohamed Bin Zayed Road saw traffic build up as motorists drove home after their first work day in several weeks. Surprisingly, many residents viewed these congestions in a positive light, saying they're signs of better days to come.
With businesses and offices reopening at 50 per cent capacity, commuters found their way to work, something they haven't done in more than two months.
