23-Nov-2016

Abu Dhabi: A new 62-kilometre highway connecting Abu Dhabi and Dubai is nearly complete, and is expected to be opened to motorists by the end of the year.


The highway, which is an extension of Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road (E311), is expected to ease congestion on the existing E11 Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway or Shaikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Road, said officials at the Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada). Musanada is a public firm that provides contracting, construction and facilities management services to government entities.


“The highway is being built at a cost of Dh2.1 billion and 98 per cent of the work is complete. It has six interchanges and six underpasses to ensure the smooth flow of traffic, and will include two petrol stations, one on either side of the road, between its first and second interchange near Seih Shuaib,” Shamsa Al Shamsi, project manager for the new highway at Musanada, told Gulf News ahead of a media tour.


Musanada has been in charge of all construction on the new highway, and began the work in the first quarter of 2014.
