New Traffic Route - Imminent Road Closure

Dear Parents,

We have just been informed that work on the main road is now due to start on Friday 19th January 2018. Additional approval from the Police department was given to start the work immediately with approval received by the contractor at 8am today.

As of Sunday 21st January 2018 the detour will be fully implemented by Abu Dhabi Municipality for access to the school. In future, instead of turning left at the roundabout outside Abu Dhabi University, all visitors to BIS Abu Dhabi should turn right at the roundabout and proceed the other way around the University. The exit from school is back along the same route. Additional signage and manpower will also be in place to manage the traffic accordingly and help us all get used to the arrangements.

In order to minimise traffic congestion, parking will no longer be available directly outside the Primary entrance, however parents will still be able to drop their children off here. Additional parking will still be available further on towards the University accommodation. Should Primary parents wish to park and accompany their children into school, please use the additional car parking or park at the main entrance side of the school. Please see the attached maps for clarification of the new routes and parking areas.

We are very lucky at BIS Abu Dhabi to have the amount of parking that we do. I would like to thank all parents for their support next term in helping all children stay safe in the car park whilst these new arrangements are in place.

Yours sincerely,

Patrick Horne
