Abu Dhabi General Services Company, also known as Musanada has started construction works worth $26.4m (AED97m) on the UAE capital’s Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Road (E10) – a major link between the Abu Dhabi island and mainland – to improve traffic flow and reduce bottlenecks in the city.

According to a report by state news agency, Wam, the scope of the project includes the widening of E10 from Dhafeer Street to Salama Bin Butti Street by adding a new lane; and increasing the current four-lane road to five. Designated roadworks will start from Ministries Intersection, all the way to Qasr Al Bahr Intersection.

Musanada has deployed 600 workers for the project, which is expected to span 165 days.

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport (DoT) said the expansion and traffic improvement works will ensure better traffic flow, reduce congestion, and improve road safety, in line with Integrated Transport Centre’s (ITC) aim to enhance road traffic in the emirate.

According to ITC, the road improvement works will also include the operation of a ramp metering system at all entrances to the road, in a bid to reduce the flow of vehicles along the road during peak times.

Musanada, which is also implementing internal roads and infrastructure projects for 354 plots in Abu Dhabi’s Shakhbout City, is carrying out the E10 roadworks in collaboration with DoT, Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities, Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters, Abu Dhabi Distribution Company, and Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre, among other entities.
