Motorists were warned of an immediate road closure on Yas Island on Thursday as work continued on the much-anticipated UFC Fight Island.

With less than two weeks to go until the event gets under way, the Department of Transport said Yas Drive would be closed from July 2 until July 30.

In a tweet, the authority urged motorists to abide by all traffic rules during the temporary road closure.

The inaugural fight festival will begin on July 12 with the pay-per-view UFC 251 and will continue in the weeks following with three consecutive fight nights on July 16, 19 and 26.

The road closure falls in line with a number of safety measures that have been set in place to coincide with government safety measures against the spread of covid-19.

All those working on the event, including UFC athletes, coaches and event staff will be housed with the 25km safe zone which includes the arena, a hotel, training facilities, and restaurants.
