Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the temporary closure of three stations on the metro green line - Al Ras, Palm Deira, and Baniyas Square, effective from 31 March, and for a period of two weeks. 

Additional closures include entrances leading to Al Ras from three main roads and interchanges: Al Musalla, Al Khaleej, and Baniyas Streets.

The move is on the sidelines of Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management announcement of increased restrictions on movement in Dubai's Al Ras area, to facilitate intensified sterilisation procedures, Dubai Media Office reported. 

The Dubai Health Authority will provide residents of the Al Ras area with all essential supplies during the period. 

All bus routes to Al Ras will be diverted to Al Musalla, Al Khaleej and Omar Bin Al Khattab streets, with all taxi movement to the area restricted.
