Abu Dhabi has reduced the speed limit on several roads to 80 kmph as foggy conditions reduce visibility.

The National Center of Meteorology on Friday issued a red alert to several parts of the UAE capital, with few areas forecast to experience visibility less than 1,000 meters.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution and check the electronic boards for updates.

The limits are being imposed on Trucks road (Al Faya), Al Nof - Al Hamra road, Turaif -Zayed City road and Zayed City - Liwa road.

NCM forecasts the conditions will improve by 11:00 am.
