  • This artery highway passing through the whole Dubai without a single traffic light. The impressive Highway, allowing hassle-free and easy access to any point of the city. Six lanes in each direction. If I am not mistaken, passenger transport may accelerate to 140 km. per hour. A bunch of interchanges in principle eliminates congestion and traffic jams on the highway.
