Several major roads in Dubai are to be closed between 11:50 am and 4:30 pm on Thursday, February 23, according to Time Out Dubai.
The UAE Tour 2023 cycling competition is taking place which means that some roads, areas and intersections will be closed for periods of time throughout the day.
The cycling race will go through lots of busy areas of Dubai and it could disrupt your day. Luckily, they won’t close at the same time but periodically throughout the day.
