Default Abu Dhabi....Route Map

Have to drive to Mussafah Industrial Area in AD tomorrow. They have sent me a local route map to find the yard within the industrial estate, but I have no idea how to reach Mussafah from the main Dubai-AD highway. Can anybody help? All those bridges confuse me!

Use Google Earth - you can zoom in and see which lanes and turn offs you need, as well as seeing the bridges,

It's signposted...I would suggest heading for the airport and then taking the road back into Abu Dhabi from there...I know for sure it's signposted quite clearly from the airport road.

LH - you don't need to go over either of the bridges because Mussafah ind est is on the mainland.... Follow signs for Mussaffah bridge, from the highway, when you get close to the bridge you'll see signs for Mussaffah Industrial Estate - follow these signs and wou'll be there. If you end up crossing water you'll know that you screwed up. That's OK, you can u-turn at the next interchange.....

Mussaffah is signposted on the E11 - just follow the signs. Doesn't matter much which exit you take onto the ind est - it is a rectangular grid system....

Thank you stranger. Hopefully the road signs are in English, unlike Riyadh...did try Google Earth but its not helpful unless you can recognise what you are looking for. According to the local map provided, there is an Etissalat Tower in Mussafah Ind. Estate...really?

It says a tower on their map on Road 14 near Al Futtaim Honda/Volvo and a market, but they have just told me to cross Mussafah Bridge which is even more confusing.

Ah.... The Honda showroom is on Airport Road in Abu Dhabi, the Etisalat tower is down the road from there.... In that case, you are not going to Mussafah Ind estate, you are heading into town.......
