ABU DHABI // Work on roads and infrastructure is under way at the Emirati Neighbourhood in Madinat Zayed as part of a Dh2.4 billion project to meet the needs of a growing population.
The Abu Dhabi General Services Company, Musanada, said work had started in the rural area in the Western Region as part of the Abu Dhabi Plan for sustainable community and economic infrastructure.
“Preparations are under way to launch all the project works, with completion periods ranging between 14 and 45 months, as the expected completion date will be end of 2019,” said Ali Al Haj Al Mehairbi, Musanada’s acting executive director – building construction management division.
“The project also includes improving the soil in residential plots, which will help construction of residences for UAE nationals, saving money, time, and resources while preserving the environment.”
The construction and building works in the project include 2,755 residential plots, 37 mosques, 47 gardens and 13 schools for all educational stages, all within a residential compound extending over 1,401 acres.
It is hoped it will serve about 22,000 UAE nationals.
The project’s preparatory works also include dealing with land treatment, roads, potable water system, storm water, sewerage, irrigation and firefighting systems, power cables, 22KV power substations, and gas and telecommunication ducts.
