History and descriptionEdit

The project is being developed in three phases. Work on Phase 1, which began in February 2006, was intended to create a sector that starts along E 66 (Dubai–Al Ain Road) and extends inward towards E 77 (Jebel Ali–Al-Habab Road). Phase II of the project, which began in January 2007, involved linking the bypass with E 88 (Al Dhaid Road) in Sharjah. Phase III will involve extending E 611 from the Jebel Ali–Al-Habab junction to the outskirts of Abu Dhabi City and is expected to cost approximately US$80 million.[1]

E 611 was called "Dubai Bypass Road", before being renamed the "Emirates Road" in 2013.[2]

In 2010, UPS Airline Flight 6, a cargo plane crashed near the highway by the Dubai Silicon Oasis, after it took off from Dubai airport. All people aboard were killed.[3]

Sharjah's largest mosque, opened in May 2019, is located at the junction of this road and the road to Mleiha.[4]
