DRIVING DIRECTIONS & PARKING
CTI is in Block 12 of Dubai Knowledge Park which is located on Al Sufouh Road. It is easily accessible from Sheikh Zayed, through Media City and Internet City as well as from Al Khail, Mohammed Bin Zayed and Emirate Roads (old Dubai Bypass Road). For those who live in the Marina/JBR area and plan to use Al Sufouh Road note that the old entry point from Al Sufouh Road is closed because of the new tram station. Continue past Knowledge Park and turn right by Dubai College to enter Knowledge Park. Parking is available on the street and in the RTA lot opposite Block 12.
When you enter Block 12 using the main entrance turn right and CTI Dubai is located just a few steps down the hallway on the right side in office/training room G-02 and G-03.
