Bridge gets a Dh3.7 million makeover.
Abu Dhabi’s Delma Street Bridge just got a hip facelift. With lush greenery and brightly coloured street art, the space now looks fresh and vibrant.
A project of the Abu Dhabi Municipality, the makeover was completed at a cost of Dh3.7 million.
Located at the intersection of Delma Street and the Sultan Bin Zayed the First Street (Al Muroor Street), Delma Street Bridge’s new look now matches Abu Dhabi’s world-class urban living standard.
The municipality’s team planted a large cluster of Poinciana trees and Indian jasmine that brightened up the place and gave it a fragrant natural scent.
Various shrubs also dotted the lower part of the bridge, from Ruwailia to Penicetums, as well as Dodonia Viscosa and Bougainvilla bushes and seasonal flowers.
Engineers also adjusted levels of soil inclination towards the street to give road users a good view of the scenic landscape.
Coloured pebbles also served as striking accents for the bridge, and lighting was modified to give it changing hues at night.
The bridge’s rainwater drainage networks were also renovated and a new irrigation network was established.
