The area known as Abu Dhabi Desert Road offers an interesting look at the movement of the dunes and the interaction of human construction and desert wildlife.

The dunes have been blowing across the road and the fixed reference makes their shape more visible. The irrigated and planted areas at the margins of the main highway are host to a large number of animal burrows and birds. Transplanted rocks line the edge of the half-buried highway. There are wet areas encrusted with salt and growing tall grass with long runners. Animal tracks run at the edge of the fence.
