These include all entrances, including Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Sheikh Khalifa Bridge, Musaffah Bridge, and Al Maqta’a Bridge, the state news agency WAM reported.

Director of the Traffic and Patrols Directorate in the Central Operations Sector, Brigadier General Mahmoud Yousef Al Balushi shared that the ban would be in effect from 6am to 12 noon on Monday.

Abu Dhabi Police ask motorists to plan trips to emirate to avoid issues

The police have asked motorists to cooperate in enhancing traffic safety efforts by obeying the traffic laws.

The ban is expected to have a significant impact on traffic in the emirate, where roads are expected to be very busy due to ADIPEC, one of the largest oil and gas conferences in the world.

Motorists who need to enter the island during the ban period should plan their trips carefully.

They should also be aware that there will be increased traffic enforcement, and that they could be fined for not complying with the ban.

In recent news, the UAE’s Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI) announced the opening of the Emirates Road ‘E611’.

This major roadway has been opened for motorists travelling between the emirates of Ras Al Khaimah and Dubai.
