Musanada, Zones Corp's Razeen labour cities infra 60% complete
Musanada has deployed 946 workers under 13 main and secondary contracts for the $86m project in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) has marked 60% completion on its Razeen Labour Cities External Road and Infrastructure Construction project, with the $85.6m (AED314.3m) scheme in the emirate’s Al Wathba South area being carried out alongside Zones Corp, an Abu Dhabi-based firm that describes itself as the largest operator of industrial zones in the UAE.
Located within Abu Dhabi’s Razeen area to the south of the Abu Dhabi-Al Ain Road (E30) and close to the emirate’s Industrial City, the project is being carried out under the directives and orders of HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
According to the UAE’s state news agency, Wam, Musanada has deployed 946 workers under 13 main and secondary contracts for the 18ha project.
The scope of work for the project involves the construction of a road and infrastructure for four existing labour cities, with each city accommodating more than 25,000 workers.
Additionally, Musanada is implementing the construction of infrastructure facilities including electricity, telecommunications, water, drainage, street lighting networks, and parking bays.
Musanada said the project supported the vision of President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to provide high-quality infrastructure of the highest international standards to meet the needs of individuals and the community in Abu Dhabi.
The Wam reported stated that one of the biggest challenges facing the project was the relocation of utilities that obstructed the construction of the road, which included removing existing farms near the construction site, in addition to the construction of potable water and sewerage networks.
According to Musanada, “close coordination and collaboration between all strategic partners” helped overcome the challenges.
