Default Craine on SZR - how long did it take you to get to work??

Morning peeps,

Im sitting on my comfy settee as i dont want to brave the chaos that will be the back roads this morning!! Ive got to get the Shangri-La hotel and they have shut SZR, so im wondering how long it has taken you to get around that area this morning, whether it is from Sharjah or Trade Centre!!

Took me about 30 mins from beside the Pepsi place on SZR to get to Defence Rd round a bout and down onto Al Safa street.

SZR was closed earlier but open again (was open at 7am anyway)

yeah I had to re-route, sounds nasty mind.

Saying that I see at least 3 or 4 totally smashed up cars on the emirates road just before you turn off to mirdif.

You'd think the police would do something about it. Why on Earth they allow Craine on the highway in the first place. Never was much of a fan.
