In connection to the Asia Cup match between India & Pakistan, both Roads Dubai and Transport Authority of Dubai have issued a traffic alert. The authority warned drivers that Hessa Street, near Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road intersection, will be jammed from 3pm to 11pm Sunday. In a tweet, the authority also stated that the delay was due to the Asia Cup cricket tournament taking place in Dubai Sports City.
Alternate routes To avoid traffic jams
RTA advised motorists to take alternate routes to avoid traffic jams. “The public is advised to use Umm Suqeem Street to reach their destination/competition location, while residents of Dubai Sports City can use Al Fay Road as an alternative route,” the authority said, adding that the public should plan their journeys in advance.
India and Pakistan met in the group opener of the DP World Asia Cup on Sunday. The two teams will meet again at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday. The two teams will likely face off in the final on September 11th, if things continue as planned.
