Abu Dhabi street names

Abu Dhabi road names

Note that North-South and East-West on this page, and with reference to Abu Dhabi roads, is inaccurate. Roads close to Abu Dhabi city center (the Corniche area) are mostly either NW-SE direction (what we're referring to as North-South), or NE-SW direction (what we're referring to as East-West). Moving away from the center and into the desert, the road alignment changes such that what we're calling North-South actually goes from NW-SE to East-West, and what we're calling East-West becomes more like North-South. Confused? Welcome to the UAE.

That probably doesn't help much. Try thinking of it this way: North-South roads run along the length of Abu Dhabi island, and East-West roads run across the width of the island.
