Musanada is building roads in Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) revealed the technologies it was using to deliver its roads and infrastructure projects – including a geospatial interactive software – at the 26th World Road Congress that is being held on 6-10 October in Abu Dhabi.

The company shared plans to deploy artificial intelligence (AI) in the delivery of its sustainable infrastructure projects, and spoke about the importance of AI to enhance the safety and flexibility of roads, bridges, tunnels, and other similar infrastructure in the emirate.

Delegates and visitors at the World Road Congress explored Musanada’s ongoing projects, including the $308m (AED1.13bn) scheme to extend Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Road to the Umm Lafina and Al Reem islands, which is scheduled to complete by 2020.

Musanada also highlighted its $354m (AED1.3bn) tunnel development project in the Mina Zayed Area, connecting Sheikh Khalifa Bridge with Sheikh Zayed Tunnel and Corniche Road.

According to UAE state news agency, Wam, the company also highlighted development on the road network in the Mina Zayed area, which intends to ease access from Saadiyat Island to the port area, and the northern part of Abu Dhabi Island.
