In a statement to Khaleej Times, RTA said: "Kindly note that during the drill time no one is allowed to enter the mall, noting that the exit to the bus station will be operating normally during this time."

The closure is due to a mall-wide evacuation exercise being conducted by the Civil Defence on the day. Exit and entry to the metro from the mall entrance will be unavailable from the time mentioned "until further notice", the sign said. Here is the notice:

A staff member at MoE station's information desk confirmed to KT that the metro operations will not be affected. Only the access to the mall will be closed. Passengers will still be able to enter the station from other entrances.

The walkway entrance will remain accessible to passengers, as well as the lift leading up to it.
