ADM proceeds with construction of $67.5m Al Zahiyah project
Abu Dhabi City Municipality is working together with Musanada to complete the Al Zahiyah Development project
Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) has announced that it is proceeding with construction works on the Al Zahiyah Development project, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi General Services (Musanada).
In a statement, ADM noted that the project, which was launched this January and is valued at $67.5m (AED248m), comprises four bridges designed to link the Al Zahiyah area with Al Maryah Island.
The bridges will also link the area to nine traffic intersections, and will be tailored to serve pedestrians, in addition to helping ease traffic congestion.
The project is expected to boost economic activities in Abu Dhabi and the rental value in Al Zahiyah, ADM noted.
The scope of the development covers the refurbishment of Al Firdous Street, Street No 10, and intersecting road infrastructure.
The refurbishment works will include the construction of additional pedestrian pathways and cycling tracks, as well the reconstruction and revamping of roadsides, entry/exit points of streets surrounding hotels and the Abu Dhabi Mall, among other buildings.
Changes will also be made to the area’s car parking and street lighting, which will be replaced with LED systems.
According to ADM, upon completion of the Al Zahiyah project, the flow of traffic and the hourly handling capacity of the area will increase from 4,300 to 4,800 vehicles.
