The stations will be located on either side of Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Street, the main road running through Yas Island, read a statement issued to Khaleej Times. “The two stations currently are under construction and expected to be opened by the end of this year,” it said. “They will provide fuel and allied services to the island’s residents and consumers.”

Adnoc Distribution also indicated that it sets up mobile service stations to cope with heightened demand during special events, such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Yas Marina Circuit or concerts at Yas Island’s du Arena and du Forum. “Adnoc Distribution is in continuous coordination with all government authorities to establish service stations in all newly developed areas as well as high-density areas,” stated Adnoc Distribution representatives, adding that a gas station is also in the works for Saadiyat Island, home to Abu Dhabi’s developing cultural district.

Yas Island houses six hotels and some of Abu Dhabi’s major tourist attractions, including Ferrari World, Yas Links Golf Course and the aforementioned racetrack and entertainment venues. Yas Waterworld, a 15-hectare water park due to open in November, is expected to increase the number of visitors to the island.
