Sheikh Zayed road is the real spine of Dubai. Very busy road always. But well maintained Road. Very clear and visible signboards giving very clear directions to the exits.

If you need to travel along this route then you do what you have to but don't bother using the road when it is during rush hour. Better off getting a drink or food somewhere and you will still end up where you need to go at the same time as if you were waiting in traffic.

This road one of the most high quality roads in the world. It has very high density at rush hours on work days, and very good flow at the weekends. Be aware from taxi drivers.

Great road but highly congested, will be even better if all drivers follow correct road rules and slow vehicles stay out of fast left lanes. Can be intimidating for 1st time drivers on the road but excellent signage allow you to exit at the correct turn-off.
