Reviewed September 24, 2012

But going through the high skyscrapers along the road always makes me go wow! I've never been to New York, but I imagine it's like this.

“Lifeline of Dubai”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I travel this road everyday on the way to office from home. Every time you enter this road, you feel something different about it. The fast moving traffic and the huge towers lining the road are just amazing.
The authorities have done a fantastic job in maintaining this road which streches all the way to Abu Dhabi.
Excellent road .......Good Job Dubai authorities!!

“Dubai's Artery”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is probably the most important highway in Dubai. I don't know what to say about a highway so some useful tips are that:

1- The speed limit from Trade Center Roundabout to just past Marina: 120kph
2- The speed limit from Marina to Abu Dhabi: 140kph
3- Sights to see (from Trade Center, Abu Dhabi bound): Trade Center, Emirates Towers, Burj Khalifa, bunch of buildings, Mall of the emirates, bunch of buildings, Marina and Jumeirah Lake Towers, Ibn Battuta Mall, desert, Jebel Ali Free Zone, more desert, more desert, desert, oh.. petrol station.. desert, some trees, desert, Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi...
4- Drive carefully because there are a lot of idiots on the road
5- Many opportunities to take pictures while going over the speed limit.. Makes a nice, inexpensive souvenir for visitors at AED 600 (USD 165) a pop
6- There are 2 Salik road tolls at AED 4 a pop

Please buckle up... It's the law
