Abu Dhabi’s traffic authorities have decided to cut the speed limit on the 327km motorway linking the Western towns of Mafraq and Ghuwaifat near the border with Qatar to 121kmph, the semi-official daily 'Al Ittihad' reported on Monday.

The decision is intended to curb accidents following a spate of deadly crashes due to high speed by some drivers, the paper said, quoting a traffic police statement.

It said new signboards showing the new speed limits in that area were being installed along the road, which leads to Ghuwaifat, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

The report did not mention the previous speed limit on that highway, but it has an extra 20km as a grace limit.
