Sharjah drivers face two more years of congestion
Flooding work on National Paints Roundabout will be complete in 2013
Drivers using roads around the National Paints Roundabout in Sharjah face another two years of congestion as work continues to upgrade the area's flooding protection.
According to the Public Works Department, the $65 million project will be completed in 2013. Meanwhile the roadworks are beginning to gain a reputation for creating major traffic jams and travel disruption and the Ministry of Public Works has set up a hotline to deal with traffic complaints.
“In the last two weeks, we have witnessed an increase in traffic jams mainly because vehicles are either double-parked or parked in a way that blocks the exits of service roads,” a police officer told Gulf News.
