Infrastructure project works worth more than $43.5m (AED160m) have been authorised by the executive committee of Abu Dhabi Executive Council.

Mainly two projects comprising roadworks in the capital city, and construction of a water distribution network in Mussafah were approved, The National reported.

The first project comprises constructing more than 14km of internal roads in Sector 18 of Madinat Zayed and Baynoonah in the Western Region at the cost of $29.6m (AED109m).

Work on Sector 18 also includes building water, electricity, and communication networks, sewerage and irrigation systems, rainwater drainage, pedestrian crossings, and street lighting.

These will serve 285 residential plots, 231 of which are located in Sector 18 of Madinat Zayed and 54 in Baynoonah.

The second project entails constructing internal roads – linking Ain Al Fayda and Jebel Hafeet to the existing main roads.

Work comprises building road junctions and lighting poles, sidewalks, and a rainwater drainage network to serve 5,000 units in Ain Al Fayda and Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain City, at a total cost of $8m (AED29m).

The committee also approved the first phase of a project to build a water distribution network in ICAD 5, Musaffah at the cost of $6m (AED22.5m).
