Abu Dhabi Unveils A AED 3 Billion Traffic Improvement Projects


In a significant development aimed at enhancing transportation infrastructure, the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) of the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) in Abu Dhabi revealed on Monday the launch of several projects, with a staggering budget exceeding AED 3 billion.

Among the most ambitious initiatives is the construction of the 25km Mid-island Parkway, a monumental road endeavor comprising four to five lanes. This pivotal artery will bridge the gap between the mainland and island of Abu Dhabi via mid-islands, facilitating access to key destinations such as Al Sammaliyyah, Umm Yifienah, Al Saadiyat, and Al Reem Island. Designed to accommodate 8,000 to 10,000 vehicles per hour in each direction, the project will be executed in two phases, promising to alleviate traffic congestion and bolster connectivity across the island.

In parallel, the Musaffah Road Traffic Improvements Project (E30) seeks to tackle existing challenges on Musaffah Road, including the removal of traffic junctions, alleviation of congestion at key intersections, and the construction of two new bridges to enhance connectivity between Mohamed bin Zayed City and Mussafah. The endeavor aims to bolster road capacity, enhance safety, and streamline traffic flow within the Musaffah area.

Furthermore, the Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street Improvements (E20) project is dedicated to enhancing traffic flow between Khalifa City and Zayed City. By expanding lanes and optimizing intersections, the initiative aims to reduce congestion and improve connectivity between major urban hubs.

Additional projects include the construction of new bridges on Abu Dhabi-Al Ain Road (E22) and 79th Street in Mohamed bin Zayed City, with the objective of augmenting traffic capacity and optimizing vehicle flow to and from key areas in the region.

These comprehensive initiatives underscore Abu Dhabi’s commitment to fostering sustainable urban development and bolstering its transportation network to meet the evolving needs of its residents and visitors alike.
