Employees of Etihad Rail BD, the company responsible for the first stage of the Etihad Rail project in the UAE will be housed in dedicated residences next year, as a residential area in Mirfa is planned to be built for this purpose.
This weekend, Etihad Rail announced it had awarded the contract for the design and the construction of the residences to National Transport & Contracting Company (NTCC), a building company operating in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi.
The community will count 170 high-quality, serviced beachfront residential units equipped with advanced technology and entertainment systems, and recreational facilities will be available. Construction work of the long-term accommodation facility is expected to be completed in the second half of 2016, said Etihad Rail.
Etihad Rail DB employees and contractors have been working in the Western Region for more than one year now, facilitating railway operations and maintenance in stage one of the national railway project, which includes the connection from Shah and Habshan to Ruwais. More info
