Sheikh Zayed Road
Sheikh Zayed Road is a highway in southern Dubai, United Arab Emirates, running parallel to its coastline from Trade Centre Roundabout to the border with the emirate of Abu Dhabi, in the area of Jebel Ali. The highway has several interchanges, what is usually referred to as exits in the USA, to enable traffic to go on and off the highway. These interchanges commonly lead to roundabouts (rotaries) to enable traffic to exit or to go to the other side of the highway.
The road was formerly known as the Trade Centre Road. In the 1990s the highway was overhauled and renamed after the late president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahayan. The first stretch of the highway between interchanges one and two is home to most of Dubai skyscrapers including Burj Dubai, currently under construction, and Emirates Towers. The highway also connects to other new developments such as The Palm Jumeirah.
The road has been nicknamed “Refrigerator Row” by locals, as the positioning of skyscrapers resembles a line of appliances.
