Works to upgrade the road network and interchange at Abu Dhabi International Airport, worth $184.5m (AED678m), are 68% complete, it has been revealed. 

Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) is working on the development, which will connect the new terminal of Abu Dhabi International Airport to the Abu Dhabi-Shahama (E10) highway.

The road is expected to provide a direct access to and from the terminal towards Abu Dhabi as well as Dubai and Al Ain cities.

Under the project, the E10 highway will become broader, increasing from four to five lanes in both directions, and the Presidential Flight road will increase from two to three lanes in both directions.

Remarking on the road development, Faisal Ahmad Al Suwaidi, director-general of Department of Municipal Affairs Transport's main roads division, said: "Once operational, this project will significantly help improve traffic safety levels and reduce accident ratios by enhancing traffic movement, ensuring smooth flow and avoiding any congestion in future.

"Designed and constructed in line with highest international design, traffic engineering, safety, and environment standards, this crucially pivotal traffic route represents an important addition to the main road network in Abu Dhabi."

Saleh Al Sheibah Al Mazrouei, Musanada’s acting roads and infrastructure executive director, said the road is part of Musanada's efforts to deliver strategic projects that contribute to achievement of the objectives of Abu Dhabi Plan, WAM reported.
