Garn Al Sabkha tunnel in Dubai has reopened to traffic after authorities closed it temporarily due to waterlogging.

Taking to their official Twitter handle, Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) the Garn Al Sabkha tunnel towards Sheikh Zayed Road is now functional.

It comes after the authority announced the closure of two main roads after heavy rain left some parts inundated. 

The RTA also closed the intersection of Al Asayel Street with Latifa Bint Hamdan Street in both directions, with drivers advised to take First Al Khail Street, Latifa bint Hamdan Street and Umm Suqeim Street, instead. 

The authority added work was in full-swing to clear the roads.
