Manama : The General Directorate of Traffic has set a traffic plan for Ramadan that includes increasing the traffic deployments on main and commercial roads, in addition to shopping malls and mosques.
The traffic presence will focus on regulating traffic flow during fast-breaking and wrong parking at mosques during Tarawih prayer. There will be coordination with the Directorate of King Fahad Causeway Police to avoid traffic jams in the evening, especially during the fast-breaking period and the traffic safety at the causeway.
The department will coordinate with the Roads Directorate of the Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning to open the Janabiya flyover junction to facilitate traffic from the causeway.
The Director-General of Traffic highlighted that the service-related section would be opened from 8 am to 3 PM, except the Inspection and Accident Department that would continue until 5 PM and the Driving Test School until 7 PM.
The peak period for trucks would be from 7:30 to 8:30 in the morning and 1:30 until 2:30 in the afternoon. The Director-General urged road users to follow traffic rules, highlighting that statistical analysis showed the traffic accidents in Ramadan mainly occur because of lack of attention, over speeding during the fast-breaking period and wrong overtaking.
