Abu Dhabi Road To Have Speed Limit Reduced
As of November 15, the speed limit on the Abu Dhabi – Al Ghuwaifat Road is to be cut.
Speeds will be reduced on three parts of the road. The limit on the Al Dhafra Bridge diversion to Baynunah Forest stretch, 176 kilometres, falls to 100kph, with a 21kph buffer.
From the forest to Barakah, the speed limit will be set at 120kph, while on the final stretch, Barakah to Al Ghuwaifat, the limit will drop to 100kph. There will be a 21kph buffer on the latter two stretches.
The limit for heavy vehicles is 80kph across the entire road, while passenger buses can go no faster than 100kph. As well as helping to improve safety conditions, the speed limit is being enforced to reduce traffic flow as work continues to widen the road, an Abu Dhabi Police spokesman said.
