Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) and Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) have completed the 140km Al-Maqtara-Hamim road project, a $10.9m (AED40m) development that was kicked off in 2018 and included maintenance work for road surfaces, signs, markings, and steel and concrete barriers to boost traffic safety.

Musanada said the project—implemented in line with the Abu Dhabi Plan to provide sustainable transport in the UAE capital — was completed “in accordance with the agreed planned construction delivery schedule”.

Project works spanned 140km [Wam].

The project's scope of work included the construction of a new roundabout close to a petrol station, allowing inbound motorists from Abu Dhabi to Hamim to make a U-turn while ensuring safety requirements for road users.

ITC and Musanada, according to UAE state news agency, Wam, also revealed that they would launch development projects in the capital's Al Dhafra region over the coming period, of which the six most important schemes covered roads in Baynounah Madinat Zayed, Sectors 19 and 21 of Madinat Zayed, and the industrial area in Al Mirfa.

Upcoming priority projects also include the Eastern Lot, and the completion of the Southern District in Ghayathi, plus works related to internal roads in Sector 18 of Baynounah Madinat Zayed.
