  • It's a long road that goes from one end of the city to an other. Nothing special really, just a road. 
  • For the first time use Sheikh Zayed Road I drive myself and regretted not having experience for years and many visits. Pleasant on the broad road Organizer with seeing the towering turrets. There are Gates electronic fee approximately five gates in the direction of Central Dubai Marina and even each gate fees five dirhams

  • It is very very well maintained long highway. Very Busy in peak hours. Maximum Speed is 100-120 kms per hour. Gives you smooth ride.
