No fee will be charged for public parking in Sharjah on the occasion of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) tomorrow, October 21.
The public parking will be free on October 21 which will be observed as a public holiday.
However, the public still needs to pay for their parking at selected zones identified by blue parking information signs – which are subject to fees on all days of the week including Fridays and public holidays.
The public can avail free parking facilities in every area, except Al Hisn Street (Bank complex), Al Shuwaiheen, Al Shoyoukh Corniche Street, Qays Ibn Abi Sa’sa’ah Street, Al Jubail, Central Souq, Al Majaz 1, Corniche Street (Khalid Lagoon area), Majaz 1, Majaz 2, University City Road, and Muwaileh Commercial Area.
The Sharjah Municipality would inspect parking lots to ensure that motorists abide by the rules.
Earlier some motorists were caught occupying two parking slots for one vehicle, while other residents misuse the spaces by leaving their cars in the area for two to three days. (AW)
