A Major Dubai Bridge Will Close Every Friday For the Next 5 Weeks

Drivers will want to plan their weekend journeys ahead over the new few weeks as a bridge in Dubai undergoes annual maintenance.

Al Maktoum Bridge will be closed to road and marine traffic every Friday from October 27 until November 24, from 1am to 9am.

Alternative routes for drivers

During the closure of Al Maktoum Bridge, traffic will be diverted to alternative routes – including Al Shandagha Tunnel, Al Garhoud Bridge and the Business Bay Crossing, in addition to exit points of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road.
