Awarding fresh construction contracts for stalled infrastructure projects such as Abu Dhabi Metro would support economic growth in the capital,
These included the awards of a Dh1bn construction package for a business district project in Madinat Zayed that will house 300,000 people and 325,000 workers. A development originally intended to become Abu Dhabi’s second downtown as well as a Dh687 million residential project in Al Hayer, near Al Ain, and money for new roads and electricity substation works.
The first phase of the metro is expected to run 18 kilometers between Zayed Sports City in the south of Abu Dhabi Island and Mina Zayed to the north with 5km below ground and 13km above ground.
