“No respect for a residential area”

A Dubai expat voiced her frustration on X about midnight roadworks during the week, which were preventing her family from sleeping. She reached out to the RTA and Dubai Properties for assistance in resolving the issue. The noise was especially challenging with children trying to sleep.

She said,“@DubaiProperties @rta_dubai how are you allowing road works at 12am on a weekday!!! Waking up our community AGAIN baby awake I’m so sick of this!! No respect for a residential area”

Huge shoutout to the RTA for always listening and finding solutions! An RTA representative called her and responded to the tweet, saying, “Kindly note that we have instructed the contractor on the mentioned project to avoid late-night work and to carry it out during the daytime.
