Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Drive is a street in Dubai that was named after Dubai's Vice President and Ruler. The street's opening ceremony took place in November of 2016.

The Sheikh Zayed route is connected to the Dh2.1 billion road for a distance of 62 km. The line was created to relieve traffic between the two cities.

This eight thousand vehicle per hour route starts at the end of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed route near Seih Shuaib, which lies on the border between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The green belt that surrounds the road include not only the Al Maha woods but also the Khalifa Port Industrial Zone and Bida Khalifa.

From its beginning at an intersection with Al Ajban Road, this road travels past Shahama, Zayed Military Camp, and Al Falah en route to an end at an interchange with Sweihan Road.

In addition, it provides quick access to the Abu Dhabi airport, Al Ain Road, Yas Island, and Saadiyat Island.

Between the first and second interchanges, there are now two brand-new petrol stations.
