Yeah, but it also looks like the idea is "stolen" from Al Salam Tower. You can see some indifference, though its exactly the same.

The DMCC ad boards put in place just a couple of days ago in SZR between 5th and 6th interchange have the same rendering but with the name ELAF.

The problem is that the boards are small and hanging on the lamp poles in the middle section between the lanes.

I didn't dare to take a picture this morning going at 140 at the left lane.

I checked the DMCC website but wasn't updated. A quick Google search found only towers in Saudi Arabia. I think like AU = Gold and Almas = Diamond, Elaf should be Arabic word for something precious, maybe a safir or rubin stone.

However it's all true, just wait and see.

140 is not allowed!!! :jk:

yep quite hard to take pic while driving, maybe someone can take pics from an overfly?

btw: did you disable this sucking beep beep beep machine?? ;)



:runaway:

... and Al Naboodah did disable it for me on the first 1,000 Km inspection.

so, you're one of the wild and fast guys ;)

i guess it's your car?! ;)

in dubai you can expect prison for this, right?

in germany you can drive 300 and nobody would do anything, no speed limit, but you better do it on the highway, cause it's only allowed there!

max inner-city speed is 50

Yes it is my (German) made car. Picture taken a couple of months ago on the return from Abu Dhabi, in empty traffic.

No, I'm not one of those "wild and fast guys", quite the opposite, so rare ocurrances have to be documented.
