The Events Security Committee at Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) and Dubai Police has chalked out a plan for the traffic movement, and road security of the public celebrating Eid Al Adha holiday.
Brigadier Expert Khalil Obaid Al Bishri, Acting Director of the General Department of Organization Protective Security and Emergency cum deputy Head of Events Security Committee, said, “The Committee has completed preparations and is all set for the advent of Eid Al Adha holiday. It has held a series of coordinative meetings with the concerned entities and set up a joint
security committee for addressing the respective fields and ensuring the security of tourist areas, malls and traffic flow
during Eid celebrations.
“Much emphasis was placed on ensuring a smooth traffic flow on traffic hotspots such as the Airport Street, tourist destinations and malls. Dubai Police road patrols will be intensified to ease the traffic movement and fend off any potential traffic issues that might crop up due to the intense vehicular traffic in those areas,” he added.
