One of the busiest roads in Sharjah will be closed for almost three months from today as work to upgrade the emirate's motorway network begin. The Dh17.5 million project to extend Sheikh Mohammed Bin Saqr Al Qasimi Road, one of the main roads in the emirate, will take around 75 days, officials from the Sharjah Department of Public Works (DPW) announced.
The Sharjah Police received a number of complaints reporting theft of a number of buses form different areas in the emirate, including one owned by a hotel. During investigations, the police suspected four persons, including the owner of a second-hand autoparts shop.
According to a senior official, Sharjah Transport commuted 15,376 passengers in the first three months of the year. “This is basically due to the steady and punctual bus schedules in all stops and stations,” said Yusuf Hammadi, Manager of Sharjah Transport Office in the Eastern and Central regions.
