ADM commences phase 2 of infrastructure, road and park projects in Khalifa City

ABU DHABI: Abu Dhabi City Municipality has started the second phase of road, infrastructure and park projects in Khalifa City at a total cost of AED 2.2 billion. The city has been divided into three work areas as part of an ambitious plan aimed at raising the standard of living.

In its statement, ADM said that the works included lighting for internal streets, constructing pavements and car parks, upgrading the storm water network, lowering the water table, revamping and widening main roads in the city, and converting existing roundabouts into signal controlled intersections.

According to the Municipality, works also include constructing dedicated footpaths and bicycle lanes along the city’s main streets such as that adjacent to Al Raha Gardens Villas, and the street adjacent to the city’s Commercial Centre, in addition to Streets 20 and 26.

The project includes establishing car parks opposite all residential villas and commercial buildings parallel to the street to avoid impacting traffic. Each residential land plot will have four parking spaces, however commercial land plots will follow the standards set by the Department of Transport in this regard.

This project is part of the Municipality’s strategy aimed at offering the best services to citizens through the best methods. From this standpoint, the second phase will witness the construction of footpaths over all the city sectors in addition to landscaping work of over 70 kilometres alongside roads. The project includes linking all residential and commercial areas with bicycle lanes to facilitate mobility within the city.

Regarding public parks, three parks have already been constructed, and the second phase will see the construction of a further 3 to 4 parks annually until the integrated project is completed.
