Know Before You Go
The scrapyard is a perfectly legal enterprise run under the surveillance of the state police. Visits are not encouraged, but they are not actively discouraged either (as yet). At the entrance, there are several bungalow-like offices. Even if the guards are not present, it is implicitly required that visitors report themselves to the authorities upon entering. An authorized escort accompanies visitors to the scrapyard. It should be understood that this is not a guide in the common sense of the term. His or her presence is to ensure the safety of the visitors, and perhaps, that nothing gets stolen.
It may not seem the most direct route, but the easiest way to reach the scrapyard is actually by heading west along Salwa Road, and then heading south following the signs for Mesaieed. Along the way, there is an exit for Al Wukair, which leads directly to the scrapyard. This route is longer than driving through Al Wukair (village), but it bypasses all the traffic and the countless speed bumps.
