You can leave Abu Dhabi on Khaleej Al Arabi (30th) street, and go over Musaffa Bridge, you need to turn 3rd right, signposted Musaffa and Tarif (E11), keeping to the left at the subsequent fork in the road to join the main Musaffa road, (E22). You can also leave on Maqta Bridge, you need to head towards Musaffa, Tarif and Sila. This also applies if coming from Dubai or Al Ain.
Once on the E22, Follow the directions to Tarif and Al Ain. Go straight under the 2nd or 3rd flyovers/bridges, past the Delma Mall on your right and under the last flyover. The road bends here and the buildings clear. On your right there is an ADNOC petrol filling station. Fill up if you need to, as it is 90km along the Tarif and Sila road to the next ADNOC. Immediately after the filling station, turn right onto the Tarif and Sila road, signposted Tarif, Al Sila and Ghweifat.
This is where you join the coast road to Tarif and Sila, although you don’t see much of the sea from the road. Eventually you come to a junction signposted to Abu Al Abyad. Continue over the flyover across this junction and soon you will see on the right an ADNOC petrol station. This is a popular refreshment / comfort stop for the people who commute to Madinat Zayed.
After the ADNOC, take the next right slip road, signposted to Madinat Zayed, Liwa (Mazaira’a) and Zayed City. Go around the roundabout to cross over the flyover/bridge, heading inland on the E4. After another small roundabout and another flyover crossing the railway tracks, you will be on a high quality highway with very little traffic. It rises from the salt flats up through scenic sand dunes and low hills. After about 30 minutes you get to the town of Madinat Zayed. At the first traffic lights (signal) turn right. The Colleges are in the Baynounah Education Complex.
