If you’re regular routes in Dubai include using Tripoli Street take note: the speed limit is increasing on certain sections of the Dubai road.

As of Friday October 25, the speed limit on Tripoli Street will increase in two key areas. In the sector from Emirates Road to just before Nouakchott Street, the speed limit will increase from 80 km/h to 100 km/h. Then, the speed limit will increase to 90 km/h in the sector from just before Nouakchott Street to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road.

So, if you’re daily commute includes using the road near Mushrif Park and Dubai Safari, it’s likely to affect your route.

The RTA made the announcement on Wednesday, saying that the decision was reached alongside Dubai Police following “elaborate studies conducted by Traffic and Roads Agency”.

“Current speed limits are being revised as part of RTA’s traffic safety studies continuously commissioned on vital roads across Dubai Emirate,” explained Maitha bin Adai, CEO of the RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency. “Lowering or increasing speed limits depends on the road condition and the surrounding environment, and is decided in coordination with the strategic partners.”

The existing speed limit signs will be changed to reflect the new speed limits on Friday October 25 and directional and cautionary signs will also be adjusted.
