One of the major projects approved by the Executive Committee is the development of the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Road from the Falah Intersection to the Qasar Al Bahr intersection, estimated at an overall cost of $29.6 million.
The project will include works within the Sheikh Zayed tunnel and improvements to intersections aimed at easing traffic, facilitating transport into the city and increasing the efficiency of the road network.
The Committee has also approved a $17.15 million project to link the emirate’s existing power grid to the Barakah Nuclear Power Plant. The project will also build four 400V overhead transmission lines at the plant, which will then be linked up with the two main stations at Madinat Zayed and Bab 2. This will provide a link and supply to the Abu Dhabi General Transport Company network and control centre through the transmission of 5,600MW from the overall power generated at the station.
The committee also approved a project to develop the electricity distribution network in Ghayathi and Jebel Dhanna in Al Dhafra, Abu Dhabi, at a cost of $11.29 million. This project will include the supply and installation of electric cables over 89km to reach the optimal use of power resources, and reinforce sustainable power efficiency in new housing units in these areas.
An operation and maintenance project for the beautification of the Abu Dhabi Corniche has also been approved, at a cost of $5.98 million. This will include the cultivation of green spaces and the installation of aesthetic structures, decorative items, fountains, lighting and other relevant service facilities.
