  • The road is a one stretch extremely wide, extremely organised piece of infrastructure. It is one of the most busiest roads in Dubai. 
  • The Highway 6 bar is always full, but keep. Here then every second car in some hyper-super expensive vehicle

  • This is a very busy road covering a lot of distance. It has varying buildings from the pretty small to massive skyscrapers. Well worth a drive along and provides great views to the city.
