Some of the roundabouts have recently been through a beautification process with new grass and flowers being planted within the circle.
The roundabout near the new entry to the Fujairah Fort has had nothing short of a complete overhaul in the last few days.
Drivers coming down Moh’d Bin Matar Rd (with its car showrooms and Dana Plaza) will have noticed that the roundabout is radically different. All the trees have gone and with them the grass cover.

The total extraction of the trees gives to drivers a much clearer view of cars approaching from the roads that flow into this circuit.
The absence of the tall trees now brings the Fujairah Fort into much greater prominence, day and night, which may be the chief reason that prompted the overhaul.
There is no word yet on what this refurbished roundabout will look like or whether it will be the subject of some novel roundabout architecture which has been proposed in an earlier article.
