The Ministry of Public Works has completed the first solar lighting project for a road that extends 11km.
The Wadi Sidr Area was selected for the solar lighting system, which does not require electrical installations or high and low tension power lines.
The solar lighting system reduces carbon emissions. Maintenance cost is also lower.
Dr Abdullah Al Nuaimi Belhef, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Public Works, said on Monday that this project is in line with the directives by the UAE and Abu Dhabi governments on the implementation of sustainable projects.
