Weekend Closure of Sheikh Zayed Road: Traffic Diversion During COP28 and Union Day Celebrations

Closure Details

A segment of Dubai’s bustling Sheikh Zayed Road is set to experience a temporary closure during the morning peak traffic hours over the weekend. The closure, scheduled from December 1 to 3, coincides with Dubai’s Expo City hosting the UN Climate Change Conference COP28 and the UAE celebrating its 52nd Union Day.

Traffic Diversion

Abu Dhabi-bound traffic on Sheikh Zayed Road, specifically from the Trade Centre Roundabout to the Expo Intersection, will be redirected. The closure will be in effect from 7 am to 11 am on December 1-3 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). Road users will find signs on overhead smart screens indicating traffic diversion and suggesting alternative routes.

Alternative Routes

Alternative routes for drivers include Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed, Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, Emirates, Al Khail, Jumeirah, Al Wasl, and Al Khail roads. Additionally, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) recommends considering the use of public transportation during these days.

Event Impacts

COP28, taking place from November 30 to December 12, is expected to draw more than 70,000 participants from 198 countries, including heads of state, leaders, ministers, climate activists, and delegates. Meanwhile, the UAE’s Union Day celebrations on December 2 will grant both private and public sector employees a three-day break from December 2 to 4.
