Six lanes each direction is good, however these lanes seem to be narrower than american highway lanes. Maybe just an optical illusion

I think global warming might cause the temperatures in Dubai to reach even lower. Like in Saudi Arabia.. Tabuk, al-baha & I think few other places.. it snowed recently. In some countries near by, the temperatures dropped to the lowest in history. It might happen to Dubai also.

Maybe this is a stupid question but if tons of sand blows on to the highway what do they do about it? Do they just leave it?
