Abu Dhabi a bigger construction site than Dubai within four years

This building boom will allow the population of the city to double within a decade and the focus is very much on private sector involvement.
Not since the 1960s when Abu Dhabi first arose from the Arabian sands has the city seen anything like this transformation, and the commitment of the government is clear and absolute.
Several speakers at the MEED conference referred delegates to the integrated urban plan available in full on abudhabi.com which is a remarkably concise document detailing the expansion of the city.
One of its objectives is to avoid the infrastructure bottlenecks that have left neighbouring Dubai with a traffic gridlock over the past few years. But Abu Dhabi already benefits from a road system with a generous capacity for existing traffic which will help.
‘The first consultants offered our dear Sheikh Zayed a network to handle 50,000 residents and when questioned they returned with a system for 100,000. And he told them to build for half-a-million,’ said engineer Jaber Ali Khali, CEO of Zonescorp, the giant quasi private developer of free zones.
