The Abu Dhabi Executive Council's (ADEC) executive committee approved projects worth $82.8m (AED304m), part of the Abu Dhabi Plan, for development within the emirate. 

At a meeting chaired by HE Saeed Eid Alghafli, chairman of the Executive Office, the committee approved a project to develop infrastructure for an intelligent transportation system in Al Ain at a cost of $31m (AED114m).

The project aims to improve public safety on the main roads of Al Ain by using intelligent systems for early detection and response to accidents.

It is expected the system will help reduce congestion and subsequent delays, and also minimise emissions.

The committee also approved the design and delivery of a project for issuing housing coupons in the Al Qou area of Al Ain.

Under the project, 191 coupons will be issued at a total value of $26.1m (AED96m), WAM reported.

A separate $20.1m (AED74m) project will be implemented to carry out preliminary and earthworks for the commercial enclave in Medinat Zayed, Abu Dhabi City.

The project will be built over an area of 1,500ha and is expected to accommodate 300,000 people as residents, in addition to 325,000 business staff.

A $5.4m (AED20m) contract for the development of public parks in Abu Dhabi and another contract for the renovation and expansion of the existing Central Souq in Medinat Zayed were also awarded during the meeting.
