5 ways to keep your windscreen clean.

I guess many of us would've got this email forwarded to our inboxes today.
Thought I'd share it here....



1. Starting off from the Deira and Hor Al Anz area, this route will take you through Shindagha tunnel, passing through Al Mina and ending up in Al Diyafah. At this point, you can either take Al Wasl Road or Jumeirah Beach road. This route will take you straight to Dubai Marina avoiding the Salik toll gate, or you can take Al Diyafah Road to get onto Shaikh Zayed Road.
2. Coming from Sharjah on the Dubai-Sharjah highway, this route will take you to Maktoum Bridge by way of Al Ittihad, direct to Shaikh Zayed Road. Alternatively, you could take the floating bridge which will connect you through Oud Metha and rejoin Shaikh Zayed Road. You can then take a right straight to Madinat Jumeirah on the fourth interchange. (The floating bridge will be complete in July.)
3. Coming from Sharjah by way of Al Qusais, you take the Dubai Airport Tunnel and go straight through Festival City and over Business Bay Bridge. This will take you to Zabeel Road and connects you to Shaikh Zayed Road at the first interchange. You can take a right at the fourth interchange to Madinat Jumeirah or alternatively, you can take the third interchange and get onto Al Wasl Road.
4. The third alternative route coming from Sharjah is by Emirates Road, all the way through until you get to the Arabian Ranches, after which you take the next right straight to Al Barsha. Just behind the Mall of the Emirates, you can turn left to Al Mafraq Road, that links up to Shaikh Zayed Road, allowing you to avoid both Salik toll gates.

From the areas of Mirdiff and Al Rashidiya, one can take a short ride on Emirates road and turn right to Ras Al Khor road and join Shaikh Zayed Road via the third or fourth interchange. You can either take Shaikh Zayed Road or go across to Al Wasl Road or onto Jumeirah Beach Road.

Thanks! We've not bought a tag yet and we'll be heading to Dubai from Al Ain late this week. This will be good to know.

Actually you dont consume more fuel, as long as it free flowing traffic...its only more mileage. Considering you drive at 80-100kmph it fine. From Shj I took Biz Bay bridge through the airport tunnel to my office at Emaar Biz park and did 51 kms in 45 mins compared to 38 kms in 75 mins thru Ittihad road and SZR.

there is a problem...a big one if you take options 1,2 & 3. You end up getting stuck in traffic near burj al arab....

theY are just playing with the people reactions that they will take the free road instead of payed one,I advise every one to USE SALIK to make the salik roads with traffic .
please do that to frustrate this devil system.
