Abu Dhabi has updated its speed limit signs across the emirate, coinciding with the removal of the speed buffer in the emirate.

Authorities in the capital removed the 20kph speed buffer that has been afforded to motorists across the seven emirates yesterday, but with some signs covered up there was confusion as what actual speed limits applied.

Now officials at Abu Dhabi Municipality have confirmed that, in conjunction with Abu Dhabi Police and Traffic Patrols, all 4,096 have been updated with the correct speed limits – a process that took 24 hours to complete.

In images posted on social media, Abu Dhabi Municipality revealed three signs that showed speed limits of 120kph, 140kph and 160kph.

Among the notable changes is the speed limit on the Dubai road, around Deerfields Mall, which is now 140kph.
