Sheikh Zayed Road

Sheikh Zayed Road (SZR) – is known as one of the main highways in Dubai and the road that connects the seven emirates. SZR not only is the busiest road in Dubai, but it also has many high-rise buildings that house residential apartments and serviced hotel apartments. Sheikh Zayed Road (SZR) has 14 lanes connecting all UAE Emirates to each other. 

This road is the main artery of the city. The highway runs parallel to the coastline from the Trade Centre Roundabout to the border with the emirate of Abu Dhabi, 55 kilometres (34 mi) away in the area of Jebel Ali. 

The Dubai-Abu Dhabi Highway of E 11 links the two largest cities of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The project was proposed by the Sheikhs of Abu Dhabi and Dubai to Sheikh Zayed. In 1971, the project was approved and construction began. The highway was completed in 1980. The highway starts near Maqta Bridge in Abu Dhabi and becomes Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.
