A US $680 million (AED2.5 billion) tender package for the construction of roads, bridges and utilities projects on Abu Dhabi's Al Reem Island is expected to be issued in May.

The first contract is expected to be awarded by June and the first phase will be delivered in 18 months, with the whole regional infrastructure development earmarked for completion by 2009.

The island is currently accessible via one bridge from Sheikh Hazaa Street.

 

Preparatory work is underway, and a contract worth $7.8 million was awarded to Bin Harmal to build temporary access roads on the site.

Abu Dhabi-based developers, Sorouh and Tamouh, are behind the Al Reem Island project.

The development is being overseen by Bayt Al Khidma Properties, which was set up by the two developers to be the project's official facilitator.

"All infrastructural aspects for Al Reem Island will soon become a reality," said Dr Falah Mustafa, CEO, Bayt Al Khidma Properties.

"We are on track to provide effective and efficient roads and utilities for the entire island. I am very pleased with the pace at which work is progressing," he added.
