UAE traffic: a major route has been temporarily closed and a new speed camera installed
Along with notifying drivers of the impending road closure, the Umm Al Quwain Police have also advised them that a speed radar will be stationed at the detour site.
The authorities warned drivers to drive carefully.
The E611 Emirates Road between the Al Aqarn exit and the Al Shuhada Bridge in Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah, will be temporarily closed on October 17. The authority made the announcement on its social media accounts on Friday.
"There will be a diversion on Emirates Road from Ras Al Khaimah towards Sharjah, between the intersections of Al Aqarn area, Exit 95 and Al Shuhada Bridge, Ras Al Khaimah," the post read.
The authorities warned drivers to drive carefully and announced that a speed camera will be installed at the diversion location.
Emirate of Umm Al Quwain
Situated in the northern region of the United Arab Emirates, the Emirate of Umm Al Quwain is one of the seven constituent emirates of the country. It borders the Persian Gulf and is the second-smallest and least populated emirate in the United Arab Emirates. Situated on the crucial commercial route connecting the Middle East and India, Umm Al Quwain is situated on the west coast, sandwiched between Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah/Ajman. The beachfront stretches for 24 kilometers (15 miles).
The principal cities of the emirate are Umm al-Quwain, a coastal city, and Falaj Al Mualla, an oasis town located inland and around 30 kilometers (19 km) from the coast. The Emirate's population, as of the December 2005 census, is 49,159. Umm Al Quwain serves as the Emirate's capital.
In contrast to several of its neighbors, Umm Al Quwain has not discovered any substantial amounts of oil or gas inside its borders. Instead, it relies on income from general trading, hotels, parks, and tourism, as well as fisheries and the Umm Al Quwain Free Zone (UAQFTZ), which is situated at Port Ahmed Bin Rashid.
In 2018, the government reduced business fees and waived fines and violations against companies that had not renewed their trade licenses. This is just one of the many policies and strategies put in place by the government to encourage growth in trade and industrial activity in the emirate.
