Abu Dhabi City Municipality has opened a new entrance to Khalifa City next to Al Raha Beach, at a length of 800 metres and costing Dh11 million.

The new entrance runs from the Abu Dhabi-Dubai Highway at Al Raha Beach to Khalifa City.

The entrance, as well as others, are part of plans to improve access and make it easier to access through Khalifa City.

Residents of Al Raha Gardens and its Eastern Basins, next to Masdar City, can use this entrance from the Abu Dhabi-Dubai Road without having to pass through a large section of the city.

It will also help ease the pressure on two preceding traffic entrances on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai Road, officials said.

The project first began in June 2015.

The municipality said the project is part of an infrastructure project on the Southeast Basin of 45 in the City of Khalifa, which includes the construction of a 22KV power conversion station.
