Project at Al Ghuwaifat will take 16 months to complete and will cost $32m
Work has begun on the Al Ghuwaifat Border Post Rehabilitation project as per an announcement by Abu Dhabi General Services Company, Musanada. The project encompasses the revival of fast car and truck lanes, police/customs and passport counters/checkpoints, street lighting, and telecommunication infrastructure.
The Al Ghuwaifat Border Post connects the UAE to Saudi Arabia, with works occurring on the UAE side of the border. The project is expected to boost the movement of passengers and improve the capacity of the border post, while driving investment and development in the area of trade and tourism.
“Musanada is keen on executing projects that help develop infrastructure and boost economic and social development in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, including Al Ghuwaifat Border Post project. This project will also involve rehabilitation of food, water and sewerage networks, security and surveillance systems, external boundary walls, waiting areas, gardens and associated external works including landscape works,” said Saleh Al Sheibah Al Mazrouei, Musanada’s acting Roads and Infrastructure executive director.
Musanada expects to finish and handover the project, including infrastructure and building, at the end of September 2018.
The Abu Dhabi-based company, in collaboration with the General Authority of Ports, Border and Free Zones Security and other relevant strategic stakeholders, is said to have developed a design that caters to the unique operational requirements of the border post.
