Plea to deal with traf­fic con­ges­tion in Jebel Ali

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS... -

This is a re­quest for the au­thor­i­ties to look at the traf­fic con­ges­tion situation, usu­ally in Fri­days, due to the wor­ship­pers at­tend­ing the many churches and the Gu­runanak Dar­bar sikh tem­ple in Jebel Ali. On Fri­days, thou­sands of peo­ple gather in this com­plex to wor­ship. There is only one route to and from the area and that is via the D59 with a very small traf­fic cir­cle that was not de­signed for such heavy traf­fic. As a re­sult, there are long tail­backs on the in­ter­sec­tion and down the slow lanes of both sides of SZR and the roads around the res­i­den­tial com­plexes and the hospital in the area are in a com­plete grid­lock for most of the day. This is com­pounded at prayer time when wor­shipers go to the mosque next to the traf­fic cir­cle. Please look at con­struct­ing more ac­cess, such as a road linked to the E77 for peo­ple to come and go and ease the con­ges­tion. Gina, UAE
