Emirates, Metro and Light Rail Transit will Serve Zayed City

Emirates, Metro and Light Rail Transit will Serve Zayed City :Abu Dhabi’s Urban Planning Council (UPC) Senior Planning Manager Hamad Al Mutawa told reporters at the launch of the Cityscape event in Abu Dhabi on 17 April 2017 that Zayed City will have its own metro station.

Zayed City’s development model was revealed in the presence of Abu Dhabi’s Executive Council Deputy Chairman Shaikh Hazza Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Zayed City, named in honor of the United Arab Emirates’s founding father, is a key project of Plan Abu Dhabi 2030, a monumental planning initiative envisaged by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan to guide and promote the ongoing evolution of Abu Dhabi as a global capital city. With an area of 45 square km and a projected population of 370,000 residents, it is one of the most ambitious urban development projects being planned in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Hamad Al Mutawa reportedly told Arabian Business that “the metro will be linked throughout the city of Abu Dhabi and will be a major component in the transportation master plan for Zayed City.” He added that “we do have the plan, but it is for the Department of Transport to raise the budget for the government and the approval following which they will inform us.”

Abu Dhabi’s Zayed City to get its own metro station

This is the first public announcement by an Emirati government entity on the metro in recent times.

Infrastructure work on Zayed City is currently under way and expected to be completed by 2020, with all federal government offices and diplomatic missions moving there once it is ready.

The metro project is expected to be implemented as part of Plan Abu Dhabi 2030.

During the Cityscape event a Musanada (Abu Dhabi General Services Company) official also stated that Zayed City will have a partly underground Light Rail Transit (LRT) system.

Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second most populous city of the United Arab Emirates, and also capital of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the largest of the UAE’s seven emirates.

Initially planned in 1967 by Japanese architect Katsuhiko Takahashi for a population of 40,000 inhabitants, today the city’s population has reached 2.8 million and far surpasses the maximum population estimated when it was designed. This causes traffic congestion, a shortage of car parking spaces and overcrowding.
