JBR is going to have even more traffic problems

If you’re planning a night out in JBR, you’d better plan ahead – because yet more chaos is coming to the already gridlocked area.

The Dubai Marina district is already rammed with traffic most nights – the new tram doesn’t help matters – and now Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) has shut access at nighttime for a whole month!

Access ramps at Sheikh Zayed Road’s interchange 5.5, at the end of JBR closest to Abu Dhabi, will close from 12midnight to 5am EVERY night until 15 May, and RTA’s warned drivers to make other arrangements should they need to get in from that side.

Motorists trying to get onto Sheikh Zayed Road from JBR will also run into trouble. Just what we need!
