Abu Dhabi embarks on new city beautification drive

ABU DHABI, January 7, 2018

The Abu Dhabi City Municipality (ADM) has accomplished the illuminated kerbstone trial project at Al Mina, constructed by the Capital of Construction for General Contracting Company at its own expenses, as part of the Year of Giving initiative.

These pavements are waterproof, and heat resistant and their lighting cables are invisible from outside. They will be covered by cement mortar and will not pose any risk to pedestrians, reported state news agency Wam.

These pavements are environment-friendly as they are fully recyclable and cost-effective in power consumption (use LED system).

According to experts, this will help reduce the reliance on the traditional kerbstones of cement; which is considered the second most polluting industry emitting carbon dioxide.

The illuminated pavements are light in weight and reduce the reliance on concrete pavements, the intensive use of machinery to transport and fix them and the risk of accidents at sites, they stated.

They are also characterised by their high flexibility in construction as they can be installed through several methods, depending on the nature of the place, traffic congestion and the use of the facility.
