In case you wanted to save some time while traveling back from Abu Dhabi to Ruwais, i have some good news for you. I am happy to confirm that we have an additional, fully working, new road that connects highway E11 to Ruwais.
As we all know Exit 142 is closed. The next best route to return to Ruwais from the eastern cities of UAE, that i have recommended in this article > was from Exit 127 Ghayathi roundabout.
That route is now obsolete. We now have a new route that will take us directly from E11 to Ruwais Mall. This new highway exit is after Exit 127.
It is a very good route as you can clearly see from the pictures. To see the photo gallery …
Driving on this road has saved me around 15 minutes comparing to the Ghayathi connection.
There is a speed limit of 60 km/h but there are no speed cameras installed at this moment.
So if you want to avoid the speed limit from the Ghayathi road, the extra u-turns and extra speed bumps kindly take this new route.
PS. If you are going from Ruwais to Abu Dhabi, i still recommed taking the Ghayathi road.
PS#2. Here is a video of actually passing Exit 127, and continuing to the new direct road to Ruwais from E11.
