Consultant to advise city authorities on 20-year masterplan
EC Harris has won a deal for consultancy work on Abu Dhabi’s £16bn transport masterplan.
Awarded by Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport, the masterplan comprises 37 main road projects, seven traffic management projects and 14 road safety projects. The work is all due to be completed by 2030.
EC Harris will provide programme management services to the Department of Transport about scheduling of schemes based on cost and need, as well as overseeing the phased implementation of the masterplan over the next two years.
Brian Fitzpatrick, head of highways at EC Harris, said: “For EC Harris, the opportunity to help shape the transport system of one of the most ambitious cities in the world is very exciting and will act as a catalyst as we look to significantly develop our transportation offering in the Middle East.”
EC Harris, which has offices throughout the Middle East, has been working in Abu Dhabi for 20 years.
