Abu Dhabi starts $32m border post rehabilitation work

ABU DHABI, June 10, 2017

Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) said construction has started on the Al Ghuwaifat Border Post Rehabilitation Project, which will be developed at an estimated cost of Dh119 million ($32.3 million), said a report.

Slated to be completed within 16 months, the project includes rehabilitation of fast car and truck lanes; police, customs and passport counters/checkpoints; streetlighting and telecommunications networks, stated WAM, the Emirati news agency.

The work will involve rehabilitation of the border post on the UAE side, facilitating movement of passengers and improving the capacity of the border post, which in turn would drive investment and development in the area of trade and tourism between the UAE and Saudi Arabia and improve transportation and passenger services, it added.

Saleh Al Sheibah Al Mazrouei, Musanada’s acting roads and infrastructure executive director, said: "Musanada is keen on executing projects that help develop infrastructure and boost economic and social development in Abu Dhabi, including Al Ghuwaifat Border Post project."

"This project will also involve rehabilitation of food, water and sewerage networks; security and surveillance systems, external boundary walls, waiting areas, gardens and associated external works including landscape works," he added.
