Abu Dhabi: $177mn infrastructure projects in development
Musanada, the general services company of Abu Dhabi, has declared that a number of Abu Dhabis upcoming infrastructure projects and developments are now underway and making good progress at Mohammed Bin Zayed city in the UAE capital.
The spike in construction and building projects comes due to the dedicated increase in infrastructure spending from Vision 2030, Abu Dhabis ambitious mission to provide a sustainable infrastructure for the economy and community.
The environment is also a major concern for the decision-makers in Abu Dhabi, as top green sustainability standards have been implemented to protect the environment.
The total construction cost of the Mohammed Bin Zayed projects have been put at AED650mn ($177mn), including the AED280mn Z35 Sector project comprising internal roads and infrastructure works for residential plots over a 1.5mn sqm area, a statement from the company said.
Saleh Al Sheibah Al Mazrouei, the acting roads and infrastructure executive director, Musanada, said: “This significant project is located in Mohammed Bin Zayed city, Abu Dhabi, 20km to the south of the Abu Dhabi airport, at the Al Mafraq interchange of the Abu Dhabi-Al Ain highway. The project consists of roads and infrastructure works, including storm water, potable water, and sewerage networks, as well as telecommunications, street lighting, and electricity networks, together with 21 primary substations.”
Mansour Al Ameri, the project manager of Sector Z35, said: “Split into three contracts, all progressing as planned, the project is expected to be completed as scheduled next year. The Sector Z35 project has been designed and is being executed in co-operation with Musanadas strategic partners. The highest safety and security levels have been taken into account while designing the Sector Z35 project, along with planning sufficient landscapes and making provisions for cycling and pedestrian paths
