Motorists are advised to drive with caution to avoid delays.

Motorists driving from Sharjah towards Dubai faced tailbacks on Wednesday morning as Dubai reopened businesses, including cinemas, gyms and some education institutes.

According to Google Maps, an accident on Ras Al Khor road has caused tailbacks on E44 towards D69. Motorists are advised to follow traffic rules and take alternative routes where possible.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on Tuesday extended timings of all public transport means in Dubai. This comes as Dubai prepares to ease back to normalcy after the Eid Al Fitr break. 

Commuters are advised to plan their trips and reach Metro stations 30 minutes before their trip is to commence. Masks are mandatory. The emirate has revised its sterilisation scheme timings from 11pm to 6am. In line with this, the timings of all public transport means have been revised as well.
