Please make sure to reach office before road closes on The Saturday of the marathon. Also walking is a good exercise. Half a km should do you sone good. Thank you.

We would appreciate if the Management of Gulf Bank, could use one side strip of the Gulf road for their Marathon, while they could keep the other drive way free, as there are many companies that are working on Saturdays. Due to the Marathon, all entry points to the Gulf Road were blocked today.
This has caused inconvenience to many workers / employees today in finding parking slots and walking almost half a kilometer to their respective offices, moreover some workers are sick and on medication and the problem of walking way down to their offices, has caused a lot of inconvenience to most of them.
Kindly consider this.
