E 611 (Arabic: إ ٦١١‎) is a road being constructed in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Also known as the Emirates Road, E 611 is being developed to link the emirate of Abu Dhabi with the northern emirates of Ras al Khaimah, Umm al Quwain and Al Fujairah, without passing through the city of Dubai.

The project is being developed in three phases. Work on Phase 1, which began in February 2006, was intended to create a sector that starts along E 66 (Dubai-Al Ain Road) and extends inward towards E 77 (Jebel Ali Al Habab Road). Phase II of the project, which began in January 2007, involved linking the bypass with E 88 (Al Daid Road) in Sharjah. Phase III will involve extending E 611 from the Jebel Ali-Al Habab junction to the outskirts of Abu Dhabi city and is expected to cost approximately US$80 million.[1]

E 611 was called Dubai Bypass Road, before being renamed Emirates Road in 2013.[2]
