Musanada completes $15.8m Al Aryam interchange

ABU DHABI, April 22, 2019

Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) said that the Dh58-million ($15.8 million) Al Aryam Bridge Interchange project on Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed highway has been completed in cooperation with the Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi.

Considered as one of the vital projects that aim to develop and improve the main road network in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, this project connects Al Aryam island located 60 km from Abu Dhabi city to Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed highway, facilitating inbound and outbound traffic at all directions.

Musanada said: “Approximately 450 engineers and workers were engaged in execution of this project to construct a main bridge, a utility bridge beside entrances and exits off the bridge, in addition to a surface water sewer network and its accessories, install traffic signs and road signs and supply LED street lighting for the bridge and its entrances and exits, which will help reduce energy consumption by approximately 41 per cent at a minimum.”

Musanada added that this project is the only link connecting Al Aryam island to Sheikh Zayed highway serving Al Aryam island and users of Sheikh Khalifa highway heading to the island, which will facilitate the movement of the visitors at all directions.

The project also involved maintenance of the 12.2-km main road connecting Al Aryam island to the new bridge and provision of traffic safety means such as road markings, traffic signs, ground reflective signs, etc. to ensure safe traffic along the road.

The Department of Transport noted that execution of road projects in Abu Dhabi forms part of the efforts to realise the vision of the UAE’s rational leadership, in line with the comprehensive development plan agreed for Abu Dhabi and its suburbs. – TradeArabia News Service
