Abu Dhabi ramps up infrastructure work

Posted by Bob Brunskill

Authorities in Abu Dhabi have put out multiple tenders for infrastructure upgrades and developments in the emirate.

These have included a tender floated by the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City for improving the traffic efficiency of intersections within Abu Dhabi Islands, Emirates 24/7 reported.

Other notable tenders include a contract for the roads and infrastructure project of 170 industrial land plots in Al Faya North.

According to the newspaper, the infrastructure drive is a core tenet of achieving the Abu Dhabi 2030 Vision.

The news comes after Abdulla Al Shamsi, acting executive director of the Municipal Infrastructure and Assets Sector at Abu Dhabi Municipality, said earlier this year that the department is executing projects valued at $5 billion.

"I firmly believe Abu Dhabi is the biggest spender on infrastructure among capital cities in the GCC, we work with massive financial support," the official was quoted as saying.

"This underlines that Abu Dhabi should enjoy the best infrastructure in the Arab region, which will help to attract foreign investment and prevent any problems that Abu Dhabi could otherwise face in future, whether involving roads, maintenance or facilities."
