Five years on and traf­fic jam has gone – a lit­tle fur­ther down the road

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

Af­ter years of wait­ing, a hearty con­grat­u­la­tions goes out to the bril­liant de­sign and con­struc­tion en­gi­neers who have fi­nally fin­ished and opened the new exit to Shar­jah di­rec­tion from the Greens Com­mu­nity that 80% of the ve­hi­cles leav­ing the area use daily. What bril­liance to move the 5-year-old traf­fic jam fur­ther down the road and also in­crease the jam time by fif­teen min­utes or more. Great work, four-lane road into two-lane road, merged into one lane then to top it off, merged into the de­scend­ing snail’s pace truck and car traf­fic at the bot­tom of a fly­over. Waste of time build­ing all these new roads in DIP just to move a 5-year-old traf­fic jam, that I pre­sume they were try­ing to fix, and this not to men­tion the night­mare you have to go through to get through the may­hem of large lor­ries and cars de­scend­ing the fly­over to fi­nally get on to the main high­way, if this is the fi­nal fin­ished exit, then well done to this ab­so­lutely bril­liant team, I THINK NOT.
