The projects will see the development of roads and residential neighbourhood infrastructure on the outskirts of the UAE capital city and in the Western Region. Work has already begun on a few projects, with all expected to be completed by late 2019, the company said in a statement.

Aweidha Al Marar, chairman of Musanada and chairman at the emirate’s municipal sector regulator – the Department of Municipal Affairs and Transport – said that the projects aim to ensure adequate living standards for the capital’s growing population, while also enabling the emirates’ development.
