All works associated with the upgrade of the Al Faya – Saih Shuaib E75 road project are complete according to the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) and Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada). The road extends from the Mohammed bin Rashid Road intersection (E311) to the Emirates Road intersection (E611).
The project was completed in cooperation with Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters, ADNOC, Abu Dhabi City Municipality, Abu Dhabi Distribution Company and other stakeholders.
According to a statement, the $27.2m project saw the upgrade of the road with two lanes in each direction along with a median, in addition to the upgrade of the existing intersection (E611) by constructing an underpass, and widening the existing tunnel to allow separate two-way traffic movement.
The project also expanded the camel underpass, removal of the existing roundabout at the Al Ghadeer area, construction of a new roundabout to allow access to and connection with the existing Al Ghadeer area, development of a road lighting network and construction of a storm drainage network.
The ITC said that the execution and delivery of the project were part of the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Plan to deliver sustainable infrastructure, and the government’s vision, directions and strategy to establish high-quality infrastructure in line with the best international standards.
The project is expected to improve road efficiency and ease traffic problems and the transportation of goods from and to Abu Dhabi city, as the Al Faya – Saih Shuaib E75 road is one of the main truck roads between Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
Musanada explained that the project was undertaken in compliance with eco-sustainability requirements in respect of the facilities, services and vehicles by using recycled materials in the layers of road pavement, and using materials to reinforce pavement layers to reduce the size of asphalt used in line with highest international standards.
Both organisations said they were keen on meeting the best traffic safety standards to achieve safe traffic flow to support infrastructure components, achieve the expectations of the community, and keep up with the UAE’s sustainable vision.
