Abu Dhabi embarks on 3bn dirham road improvement project

by Dubaiforum

The Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) in Abu Dhabi has announced the allocation of a three billion dirhams budget to enhance road connectivity, reduce congestion, and improve traffic safety in the region. Several projects are underway, with the most significant being the construction of a 25-kilometer Mid-island Parkway, a new five-lane road connecting islands to the mainland with a capacity of up to ten thousand vehicles per hour in both directions.

The first phase of the project will link Al Saadiyat Island and Umm Yifienah Street to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Street and Al Reem Island. Additionally, the Musaffah Road Traffic Improvements Project (E30) aims to improve traffic flow by removing junctions, reducing congestion on intersections, and constructing two new bridges to enhance connectivity between Mohamed bin Zayed City and Musaffah.

Improvements to Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street (E20) will include connecting the airport intersection and the Bridges Complex intersection, facilitating traffic between Khalifa City and Zayed City while alleviating congestion at the Khalifa City exit. Furthermore, new bridges will be constructed along Abu Dhabi-Al Ain Road and 79th Street in Mohamed bin Zayed City, with plans to enhance road capacity in these areas.

Overall, these initiatives will not only improve road connectivity and traffic safety in Abu Dhabi but also contribute to reducing congestion and enhancing the overall transportation infrastructure in the region.
