Parsons has announced that it has won an award from the International Road Federation for the Sheikh Zayed Street and Tunnel project in Abu Dhabi.

The project won a Global Road Achievement Award in the construction methodology category. The firm provided design and construction services for the project.

Parsons Middle East and Africa president, Gary Adams, said: "Sheikh Zayed Street and Tunnel project’s construction period was very challenging, so this award is a testimonial to the project’s success."

Parsons Group president Todd Wager added: “Sheikh Zayed Street and Tunnel is a crucial improvement to a highly urbanised city. The tunnel is designed to link with new major developments, including a future transport system, while improving connectivity between landmarks in Abu Dhabi and providing a gateway to more development opportunities."

The Sheikh Zayed Tunnel project won Infrastructure Project of the Year at the 2013 Construction Week Awards. The entry deadline for the 2014 awards closed last week.

Parsons has been working in the MEA (Middle East Africa) region for more than 60 years and has offices in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain.
