Nearly one month ago, the speed limit of the “Ruwais to Abu Dhabi” highway was increased back to 140 km/h.
Today, Abu Dhabi Police has announced that you can go further than that, the new speed limit being 160 hm/h. If you know arabic, read the below “tweet”.

For the english version of the announcement, a simple google search will provide you plenty of results. For example: The National covering this story.
Also, i want to point out the obvious consequences of going 1 km/h above the speed limit. Starting from 161 km/h the radar will flash you, and you will get a speeding ticket.
Lastly, for your info, here is the full timeline of the events related to our highway:
- January 1, 2018 Mafraq-Ghuwaifat highway speed limit is increased to 140 km/h
- January 24, 2018 Mafraq-Ghuwaifat highway gets renamed to Shaikh Khalifa road
- January 30, 2018 The new speed limit (160 km/h) is announced as being implemented on Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Road from January 24
