Abu Dhabi’s 10th street has reopened on Saturday, according to the Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities at Abu Dhabi Municipality.

The reopening marks the completion of the first phase of development of the Al Zahiyah project in Abu Dhabi. Works on the project kicked off in January last year.

The street extends 1,660 metres from the Abu Dhabi Commercial Centre to the Mina Street. This phase represents an important step in the completion of the project as a whole, where 10th Street is considered a significant component of the development of Al Zahiyah.

The project is aimed at improving the quality of life in the city, enhancing the urbanised outlook of the capital and delivering an array of infrastructural projects.

The municipality previously launched a project aimed at developing Al Zahiyah, formerly known as the Tourist Club Area. It includes improving facilities and upgrading assets to achieve a host of objectives such as improving the traffic flow, carrying out street lighting and providing pedestrian paths, among others.

The development of Al Zahiyah is in line with the Abu Dhabi Vision aimed at developing infrastructure, improving the level of services for residents and rehabilitating facilities in line with sustainability standards.
