The approval was given at a meeting chaired by Shaikh Sultan bin Tahnoun Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Tourism and Cultural Authority and member of the Executive Council.

The project which is aimed at boosting tourism on the island, as part of development plans for the Western Region, features a 300-metre concrete wharf for heavy loads, floating docks to serve more than 280 boats, as well as buildings and terminals for fishermen, sea sports, passenger ships and services.

Also, the committee approved the awarding of a major sewage system project in Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain to serve 3,000 new houses for Emiratis.

The committee also commissioned the Municipal Affairs department to oversee a unified guide for the design of customer service centres and another guide for the requirements of people with special needs at those centres. —
