The five-kilometre pilot project will link the existing Abu Dhabi- Dubai main road (E11) and the new Abu Dhabi-Dubai main road (E311). The construction of the green road is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2015.
The project will act as a model for future roads to be built in the capital and will adopt globally accepted standards of sustainable practices, the DoT said.
Environmental friendly materials such as recycled asphalt, concrete aggregates and scarp rubber tyres will be used for the construction of the Middle East’s first green road.
“The Green Road project is one of the strategic initiatives undertaken by the DoT to attain the Surface Transport Master Plan vision and its priorities by developing integrated road network that addresses the current and future needs of Abu Dhabi whilst setting an example of environment-friendly projects,” the department said in a statement.
