"Please be advised that as of midday today (Tuesday Feb 09) at least one speed camera has been placed on the Saadiyat Island stretch of the new Sheikh Khalifa Expressway that joins Abu Dhabi to Yas Island."

you mean to say that people here drive faster than the speed limits? ;-)
Wifey just informed me that 90% of cars on Saadiyat seem to have set cruise at 110 today.

Might be faster to bypass the new highway and use the old road(s) for the dxb auh commuters.

Was doing 140km/hr and got passed very quickly by 60% of the cars. So I doubt the radar is doing anything.

I have driven that stretch of road everyday this week and haven't seen any speed cameras! Are we talking about the two CCTV type cameras that are directed at the tunnel? Are these actually speed cameras, as I haven't seen any like that in the UAE before. Or have I just totally missed some normal style of cameras??

Thanks for the warning but where are these located, havent seen them when I last drove down on 18 Feb???

Me too! Feel a bit like henny penny now.

The warning came from a very large abu dhabi construction company that starts with A ends with R and has AL in the middle. they doing loads of work on saadiyat so they *should* know.

My speed has been creeping back up to 139 and still plenty S500's, Infinity and Rangie sports flying past me so guess they not implemented. Although I did read Qatar recently implemented flash new tech cameras that don't flash and can capture at night. Be just blooming typical of this place to get a whopping surprise tickets bill.
