There is only one road for now between the two beautiful cities – E11 from Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai to Abu Dhabi. But the great news is that chances for a new road are big! Planned to change the situation for even better are scheduled for the end of the 2017. A new highway Dubai – Ahu Dhabi / Abu Dhabi – Dubai is already in progress and has more than 60% finished! Way to go! After completing, it will be 8 lanes for 62 km. The extension will go through Al Maha Forest – Kizad – Zayed Military City, so is supposed to have 6 new bridges and 6 tunnels. Also it is going to go straight into Abu Dhabi to Al Ain Road. And what’s even better, the highway shall be the first route to go from Abu Dhabi to Northern Emirates, and by this not having to cross all the way Sheikh Zayed Road. It meant to reduce congestion in Dubai a lot – since the upcoming road is planned to have around 7,000 vehicles per hour.
And there is something else that sounds even better – the upcoming “hyperloop” that is supposed to have trains rush between Dubai and Abu Dhabi in just 15 min. The trains shall rush in a vacuum tunnel at a speed of over 1,200 miles per hour! The UAE is once again one of firsts of the many countries in the world currently testing the technology. And the construction is already ready to start the next year!
