Al Ain Municipality to reopen $1m road

In time to ease traffic ahead of Eid al-Adha, Al Ain Municipality will reopen a road on Monday, 20 August which has been closed for a $1.3m (AED5m) facelift.

Al Ain is a city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi that has its own municipality governing services for Al Ain City and its neighboring outskirts. Work includes urban planning and development, such as the maintenance and improvement for a 1,838m stretch of Khalid bin Sultan Road. 

Running from the Hazza Bridge to the main traffic lights, the municipality's road improvement work will ease the flow of traffic when the new academic year begins in September. The important highway runs parallel to several important schools in the area, which is why Khalid bin Sultan Road is colloquially known as Schools Road.

''The project is part of the municipality’s plan for urban roads maintenance for 2018,'' said the head of maintenance, roads, and infrastructure at the municipality, Ahmed Mohammed Al Jabri.

Another project making progress in the oasis city is the $1.2bn (AED4.4bn) Al Ain Hospital, which was reportedly more than 66% complete last month following the finalisation of concrete and steel works. 

A primary substation has been handed over, and utility, main building, and electromechanical engineering works are believed to be at various stages of readiness.
