 Developing infrastructure components and facilities in Abu Dhabi is a key priority and a strategic objective in Abu Dhabi's Municipality (ADM) agenda, said Musabbah Mubarak Al Murar, Acting General Manager of ADM.
"The Municipality is moving ahead with the construction of infrastructural projects in the Mainland - South, at a cost of more than Dh470 million."
Commenting on the Municipality's ongoing infrastructure projects in Abu Dhabi and suburban areas, Al Murar said that such project epitomised the comprehensive development plan 2030 for Abu Dhabi and metropolitan areas.
The infrastructure projects will help provide "services to cater to the rapid development and demographic growth along with the remarkable economic and commercial boom witnessed by the city, which warrants top-in-class infrastructure."
He pointed out that such projects include the construction of internal roads, parks, multi-purpose courts, irrigation networks, reservoirs, and pumping stations.
"The Municipality is currently finalising an internal roads and infrastructure project at Mohammed Bin Zayed City, costing over Dh 200 million, out of the total estimated cost of Dh 470 million."
"The first project includes road works, and soil improvement, besides building all pavement layers, including the final layer, road markings, installing traffic signs, and building parking lots and entrances for land plots," he noted.
The first and second phases of the storm-water drainage network include the construction of a street lighting network, and seven electric transformer sub-stations, besides expanding water, firefighting and drainage networks, and constructing conduits for communications, irrigation and power networks.
The projects, which cost over Dh96 million and include the provision of road and infrastructure services to 150 land plots, started in January 2015 and will finish in June 2016. The completion rate has reached as much as 70 per cent at present.
"As part of the second phase where roads and infrastructure services will be extended to include 182 land plots at a cost of more than Dh 104 million, the Municipality has fully completed the internal roads and infrastructure project in different Zones at Mohammed Bin Zayed City," added Al Murar.
The Municipality also completed the construction of a park in Mohammed Bin Zayed City at a cost exceeding Dh16.5 million, spanning an aggregate area of ??19,662 square meters.
Al Murar noted that the park would serve 468 land plots, and provide an avenue that meets the aspiration of residents for a safe and healthy environment. ADM has already completed a second park in Mohammed bin Zayed city at a cost of Dh11 million, over an area of ??more than 14,000 square meters.
He pointed out that a third park in the same city is constructed at a cost of Dh11 million, stretching over more than 12,000 square meters. The Municipality has already signed a contract to build a fourth park in Mohammed bin Zayed, costing Dh6.6 million, covering an area of ??more than 5023 square meters, thus bringing the total cost of the four parks to more than Dh45 million.
