[UAE] Highways in the United Arab Emirates

I couldnt find a UAE highway thread. Most people think that UAE only has highrise buildings but there is more to it.

So post some UAE highways here..

Is every km of UAE's motorway network streetlit, even the 'middle of nowhere' parts (like in Belgium)?

Is it true that the speed limit is 160km/h?

The Abu Dhabi part of the highway has a speed limit of 160 kph. The Dubai part has in most part a de-facto limit of 140.

That is the highest limit existing. Austria has a 160km/h stretch too.

I don't like that Intersection. It affects your driving especially with a 160 km/hr speed limit. Is Dubai-Abu Dhabi a Freeway or just a Main Highway with combined freeway intersection and this type of intersection?

Yeah that's just a roundabout. And there is enough space to build it into a 4 level stack or cloverleaf

What! Nobody got any more pics of UAE highways?

We have lots of updates of UAE skyscrapers, but nobody seems interested in the highways. C'mon guys...
