    The Roads and Transport Authority has announced it will reopen the left and u-turns at the intersection of Al Sayora and Al Safouh Road in Jumeirah Beach Residence on Wednesday.

    2The intersection is also used by the Dubai Tram, which covers 10.6km including 11 stations.

    The announcement follows an ongoing plan by the authority to reduce accidents at the intersection and along the tram track.

    Hussain Al Banna, Director of Traffic, said the RTA had introduced a feature in the traffic light signalling system whereby all signals will turn red once the tram approaches the junction.

    Surveillance cameras are also being installed to monitor vehicles that jump red signals.

    Mr Al Banna said the left and u-turns had been closed to allow motorists to get acquainted with the tram movement in the area. More info
