Shaikh Hamdan made these remarks while inaugurating the Ras Ghamis-Gaga Island bridge in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi.

The project is one of the major projects the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport (DoT) is carrying out to upgrade its road and transport infrastructure under Plan Abu Dhabi 2030, which recognises the importance of transport in shaping the future of the metropolitan area.
