Major project to improve Abu Dhabi traffic flow completed

Head to Al Zahiyah to see the redesigned road network and two new bridges to Al Maryah Island

Major project to improve Abu Dhabi traffic flow completed

If you've taken a road trip to Abu Dhabi in the past few days, you might have noticed that driving through some sections of the city has become a whole lot easier.

Following a Dhs28.8 million investment, officials have announced that the Al Zahiyah Development Project is now complete.

The project spans a total of 43,300 square metres of minor roads and 277,500 square metres of streets - basically the whole area around Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Mall and between the bridges over to Al Maryah Island.

It took several years to complete, with the aim of improving traffic flow, redeveloping pedestrian walkways and infrastructure including street lighting, telecommunications, traffic signs and water and electricity.

So if you’re heading to Al Zahiyah any time soon it’s sure to be a less stressful trip than it has been in the recent past, with a redesigned road network and two more bridges taking you to Al Maryah Island.

It looks great, too. Well done to everyone involved.
