The RTA has issued a reminder about these road closures in Dubai…

These days, it’s hard to determine what the traffic is going to be like out on the roads of Dubai. Sure, around sunset we know to expect traffic during the Holy Month because of people heading out for iftars, but if you are planning on leaving home tonight and tomorrow, take note as there is a high chance you’ll face traffic and delays because of these road closures in Dubai.

Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament (NAS) 2023 is currently taking place and on Friday, March 30 and 31 from 9.30am to 1am (the following day), these roads will be closed for the NAS Cycling Championship 2023.

The roads affected are located in the Nad Al Shiba 1 and Nad Al Shiba 2 areas starting from The Meydan Hotel. The race course runs along Meydan Avenue and runs one straight road (D77) before returning back to the starting point via the same road.
