Musanada, AAM start $50m Asharej, Al Markhaniya roadworks in Al Ain
The project's scope includes the conversion of the Al Markhaniya roundabout into a traffic signal and Asharej into a tunnel
Al Ain City Municipality (AAM) and Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) have commenced construction work on the Asharej and Al Markhaniya roundabout development project in Al Ain city, with the $49.8m (AED183m) project also involving AAM and Musanada’s collaboration with Department of Transport, Integrated Transport Centre, and Abu Dhabi Police Headquarters.
The project's scope includes converting the existing Al Markhaniya roundabout (P169) to a traffic signal intersection and converting Asharej (P170) into a tunnel.
Project works also include the development of a link road between the two intersections, landscaping, sidewalks, and cycling paths.
According to Wam, AAM and Musanada said the development of the two roundabouts would facilitate traffic movement and reduce congestions – particularly during peak hours – as well as boost traffic flow, enhance traffic safety, and reduce trip times.
