An 11-Km New Highway In Abu Dhabi Is Set To Make Commute Easy Between Three Islands

The modes of transportation in the UAE are spread by Metro, Bus and taxis. The transport infrastructure in UAE is well-built and a recent update informs us about the new highway in Abu Dhabi. An 11km highway project will soon ease transportation in the capital. This new construction is set to increase the commute on specified routes.

11km Bridge Project Will Connect 3 Islands

Behold the most recent completion of an 11-kilometre bridge in Abu Dhabi. Seven bridges link Al Reem Island, Umm Yifenah Island, and Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Street in Abu Dhabi as part of this highway project. The Mid Island Parkway project will connect Al Reem Island, Saadiyat Island, and Al Raha Beach. Khalifa City when completed in 2028, will include the Umm Yifeenah Bridge as a component of its first phase.

This six-lane roadway, which spans water for 3.8 km, will upend the status quo by carrying almost 6,000 vehicles per hour in two directions. In order to encourage active and ecological lives, this major innovation offers bike rental services and includes pedestrian and cycling pathways.  The highway is the result of collaboration between the municipal and transportation departments.

The development was planned primarily to protect the surrounding natural areas, with the preservation of nature at its core. To ensure water movement and minimal damage to the mangrove wetlands, the development incorporates reinforced structural structures and arch-shaped bridges. In addition, 85% of the building supplies were local, demonstrating a strong commitment to assisting the neighbourhood economy.

The neighbourhood, local companies, residents, and tourists will all benefit from the project, which will help strengthen the network.

Now travel in Abu Dhabi will become easier with the construction of this new highway.
