(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Motorists heading to the Sheikh Sultan bin Saqr Al Qasimi in Sharjah, between Al Qulayaa and Al Majarah areas, need to be careful with expected delay due to a 20-day partial closure for scheduled maintenance and development works.
Informed sources with the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced on Tuesday afternoon told Khaleej Times that the planned development works are slated to run June 22 to July 11.
"This is a diversion more than a closure; and it is a two-phase maintenance work project."

"The pavement tiles and asphalt layers of the Sheikh Sultan bin Saqr Al Qasimi are to be replaced, and repainted."
