I love the comments in Polish on the 1st video !

Do the 160 & 140 km/h sections still exist in UAE ?

A new, 40 kilometer long motorway opened yesterday (December 3rd) in eastern UAE. Does anyone know which number this new motorway has? It's a six-lane facility that crosses the eastern mountain range to Fujairah.

Here are 2 road pictures from Dubai. I'm not really sure of the exact location but I think it's E 11 in this area. Pictures were shot today.





Note Burj Al Arab hotel in the background.

Some pics of Dubai roads taken 2 weeks ago:







Same location during nighttime:





I like the bilingual roads signs. They are easy to understand even if you're first time in Dubai:









On the upper viaduct runs the metro system:

Well it's the central artery for almost the entire city since its orientation is very much parallel to the coast (like Dubai itself). With a lot of construction still ongoing along the Khail road it's only logical to get form north to south and vice versa by taking SZR.

And the fact that its way too cool to not show of what with all the skyscrapers, the metro line and big interchanges along the route.

Dubai appears quite similar to Miami or Istanbul, transportation-wise. They rely heavily on just one major highway. (which is usually a recipe for traffic congestion).

It's a much smaller city
I get the impression that Dubai was intentionally designed this way, because they wanted a bustling main artery.

that's a lot of energy wasted in the highways...but no, no one wants to build solar street lights! I thinkthe only place i've seen them are in the newer highways within mexico city.

You pointed a true fact, why not solar street light?

I think I've seen them out in the desert in Egypt. But they're not common.

Hi everyone,

During January I took these snaps from the plane while coming in to land at Dubai airport. I didn't visit Dubai, just passing through on the way to Europe.

The first photo appears to be an un-numbered road north of Nazwa lying in between E44 and S116.
The second photo would be the Dubai Outer Ring Road E611 near the interchange with D50.
The third is the suburb of Mirdif.

Seems to be 102. It's a four-lane facility but Kalba tunnel has only two.

I am confused with the term use to describe controlled-access highway in Dubai...

Does anyone know which road this is? I can't find a bypass road U/C around Umm al Quwain despite fairly recent Google Earth imagery. Is it an upgrade of E55?

Sorry for OT, but there are plenty of solar streetlights in Dubai.

You can check some of the projects here :http://www.solarstreetlamps.com/
