Can some­one ex­plain why road lay­out was changed

7 Days in Dubai - - WELLBEING -

I won­der if 7DAYS could get an an­swer from Emaar or the RTA on the in­ex­pli­ca­ble changes that have been made to the traf­fic sys­tem around Emaar Square. Since the change it has be­come a vir­tual night­mare to get in or out of the area with rush hours grind­ing to a standstill. It took me 45 min­utes just to leave the car park last night. As I write this at 12.50pm I can see bumper to bumper traf­fic that has now brought sur­round­ing down­town ar­eas to a standstill with peo­ple aban­don­ing cars! I was pre­pared to wait to see what the fi­nal de­sign looked like in the hope that it would be bet­ter than what was pre­vi­ously in place – how­ever they ap­pear to be re­duc­ing en­trances and ex­its as well as clos­ing lanes in the road by pav­ing them over!! Come on – Dubai’s traf­fic is bad enough with­out in­vent­ing ways to make it worse. GR Dubai the rub­bish and mess peo­ple left be­hind after they en­joyed a day out. Come on peo­ple, we are in 2016, cig­a­rette butts should not be part of sand­cas­tle dec­o­ra­tions. As a gen­eral rule, if you eat from it, drink from it, smoke from it or even wear it, take it home with you or try putting it in the bin when you are done. The clean­ers were do­ing a fan­tas­tic job on the beach, but they are NOT your per­sonal slaves. Re­spon­si­ble beach goer Dubai
