The project aims to build urban areas that meet the needs of the community and provide a high quality of life, a key objective of the Abu Dhabi’s Plan.

The committee approved works to rehabilitate and replace wastewater lines in Abu Dhabi Island, Section 4, for more than $24.3m (AED89m).

The project will include the establishment of new 12.2km long wastewater lines, the rehabilitation of 3.6km long lines, the digging of 1.5km long tunnels, the maintenance of 1,500 manholes, and CCTV monitoring over 35km.
