This is the main road connecting one part of the city to the other and goes on to Abu Dhabi. Six lanes on each side generates an impressive flow of vehicles. Studded on either side of the 12 lanes are mainly american style chain restaurants offering grill,ribs etc and accommodation/hotels. This line up is intersected by the futuristic looking train...

Awesome road and a great way to see an easy overview of most of Dubai's talent buildings. The huge amount of lanes allows for lots of traffic and helps with congestion. Max speed is 120km/h ;) don't go over or you will get caught.

A twelve lane highway which connects the dwontown to the newly developed areas, including most famous skyscrappers in Dubai, and shopping malls. Besdie the highway, there is a monorail metro which can take you from dwontown and airport to all attraction sites, including Dubai mall and Emirates mall.

The first thing i noticed was that the ground is so clean. And even though we are very close to the highroad, it is not that noisy. Many of the restaurants there was very good, and there are a few shops. I was hoping there was more, but that is okay. All in all i loved this place! :)

This road ap per my guide is onel of the largest highways where you will not find any red light. From dubai to abu dhabi there is not even a single stoppage in between. If any one wants to go to abu dhabhi to dubai or vice versa one should opt for going through this highway only.

The main road of Dubai is rather new, so in good condition and not yet overcrowded like other major cities. You can drive in a straight line in to Abu-Dabi.

The wide road got me in awe the first time I saw it. It was fun to just let my eyes feast on the beautiful structures along the way.
