Abu Dhabi authorities have said that upgrading works on the E15 Highway, linking Ghayathi in the emirate’s Al Dhafra Region to Al Ruwais and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed International Road (E11), is nearing completion, with the project set to be ready by November this year.
Authorities added that nearly 85% of work on the E15 Highway is completed, with the remaining operations in full swing on the projet.
The E15 road, which links Ghayathi and the Ghayathi Industrial Region to Al Ruwais and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed International Road (E11), is being managed by the Integrated Transport Centre and the Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) at a total cost of $68.60 million.
The scope of work includes the enlargement of the actual road to three lanes spanning a length of 15.2 km, and the construction of a new road with a length of 4.5 km, as well as the construction of a ring road in the northern part of Ghayathi measuring 2.3 km.
All construction works include all infrastructure services and LED lighting installation.
The project is 85 percent completed and expected to be ready this November, said Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region, while taking stock of the ongoing development projects in Ghayathi.
“The project also includes the construction of several bridges and intersections, which will ease the flow of traffic, reduce traffic jams and improve traffic safety and security,” he stated.
Sheikh Hamdan later visited the Ghayathi Residential Complex and inspected the Al Dhafra Region Municipality Works Project, which consists of three parks.
He also toured the new Ghayathi Commercial Centre, which has been built at a cost of AED60 million on a 10,000 sq m area.
