Abu Dhabi authorities said the upgradation work on the E15 Highway, that links Ghayathi in the emirate's Al Dhafra
Region to Al Ruwais and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed International Road (E11), is nearing completion and project is expected to be ready this November.
The upgradation work on the E15 Highway is in full swing with nearly 85 per cent of the project already completed.
The E15 road, which links Ghayathi and the Ghayathi Industrial Region to Al Ruwais and Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed International Road (E11), is being managed by the Integrated Transport Centre and the Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) at a total cost of AED252 million.
The scope of work includes the enlargement of the actual road to three lanes spanning a length of 15.2 km, and the construction of a new road with a length of 4.5 km, as well as the construction of a ring road in the northern part of Ghayathi measuring 2.3 km.
All construction works include all infrastructure services and LED lighting installation.
The project is 85 percent completed and expected to be ready this November, said Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region, while taking stock of the ongoing development projects in Ghayathi.
"The project also includes the construction of several bridges and intersections, which will ease the flow of traffic, reduce traffic jams and improve traffic safety and security," he stated.
Sheikh Hamdan later visited the Ghayathi Residential Complex and inspected the Al Dhafra Region Municipality Works Project, which consists of three parks.
He also toured the new Ghayathi Commercial Centre, which has been built at a cost of AED60 million on a 10,000 sq m area.-TradeArabia News Service
